Thoroughly reviewing the career of French painter Vasarely (b. 1906), a Hungarian-born artist celebrated as the originator and principal practitioner of Op art, this catalogue features excellent reproductions of 76 paintings, sculptures, Plexiglas reliefs and tapestry designs illustrating the evolution of his work from Constructivist and black-and-white abstractions of the 1950s to colorful, visually disorienting paintings in the 60s and 70s. Includes an illustrated biography and four critical essays discussing Vasarely's early career in Budapest and Paris, the utopian and scientific ideals underlying his approach, and the psychological aspects of visual perception explored in his works.
