Lot Essay

Richard Anuszkiewicz was born in Erie, Pennsylvania. He attended the Cleveland Institute of Art and Yale School of Art and Architecture at New Haven, Connecticut, where Josef Albers taught at the time and became a decisive influence on the young art student. He became a leading figure of the Op Art Movement, and as early as 1964 Life Magazine referred to him as 'one of the new wizards of Op' (December 11, 1964 "Op Art." p. 132). In 1965, he was included in the exhibition The Responsive Eye at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York, one of the first surveys of the Op Art phenomenon.
