Victor Vasarely (1906-97) was a French-Hungarian artist credited as the father of the Op Art movement ('Op' being, short for 'Optical'). He used geometric shapes and colourful graphics to create compelling illusions of spatial depth. He was heavily influenced by Bauhaus design, the works of Vasily Kandinskii, and Constructivism. Vasarely experimented with surrealist and abstract expressionist styles during the 1940s before arriving at his hallmark checkerboards. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
