Vasarely & Benavides 63-70

Victor Vasarely was born in Hungary and began studying medicine, a discipline he quickly abandoned in favor of painting at the age of 21. In 1928 he joined the Műhely ('Workshop') Art School in Budapest, founded by the Bauhaus pupil Sándor Bortnyik (1893-1976). Vasarely worked as a graphic designer, first in Hungary and then in Paris, where he settled in 1930.
Victor Vasarely is the foremost proponent of the Op Art Movement and the present portfolio, CTA 102, is his first major print work based on the play of optical illusion and space.
