Lot Essay

Victor Vasarely (1906-1997) was a Hungarian-French artist widely accepted as the leader of the Op art movement. He is known for his optically complex and illusionistic paintings and devoted to the development of an engaging visual language of geometric abstraction that could be universally understood.

The authenticity of the present work has been confirmed by Pierre Vasarely, President of the Fondation Vasarely, universal legatee and the moral right holder of Victor Vasarely. This work will be included in the forthcoming Catalogue Raisonné de l’Oeuvre Peint de Victor Vasarely, which is currently being compiled by the Fondation Vasarely, Aix-en-Provence.
