    Victor Vasarely

    "9 April 1906, Pécs (Hungary) - 15 March 1997, Paris (France)

    The painter and graphic artist Victor Vasarely is one of the founders of Op-Art, and is one of its most important representatives, alongside artists like Jesús Rafael Soto, Yaacov Agam and Josef Albers.

    Born in Pécs, Hungary, in 1906, Vasarely started his artistic training at the Podolini-Volkmann Academy, a private school of drawing in Budapest, before Sándor Bortnyik introduced him to the Bauhaus concept. In his early years as an artist, the works of Josef Albers and Wassily Kandinsky had a lasting impression on him.
    He moved to Paris in 1930, where he lived until his death in 1997.
    To start with, he worked as a graphic artist, produced zebra studies and carried out his initial optical experiments. He then turned away from figurative painting and developed his unmistakable style: optical image patterns paired with kinetic effects.
    From the mid-1940s onwards, Vasarely presented his works in Paris for the first time. In the decades that followed, he showed his art around the world as part of exhibitions.
    His most well-known projects include his black and white creations, the “plastic alphabet” and “Vegas”.
    His works are to be found in numerous collections held by international cultural institutions, such as Chicago’s Art Institute or London’s Tate Gallery."
    The screen printing we present is part of a series of works edited between the end of the 60s and the mid-70s by Denise René (in one image you can see the detail of the "Denise Rene Editeur" embossed stamp, above the numbering), the historic gallery owner of Paris, who has exhibited the artist's works since 1944.
    The screenprint is signed by Vasarely on the bottom right and bears the number 139/200.
