Lot Notes

Victor Vasarely is regarded as the leader of the op art movement. Op art works are abstract images that create the impression of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns, or of swelling or warping. The techniques used in op art were derived from Neo-impressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Constructivism and Dada. The term "op art" was coined by Time Magazine in 1964 and implied a form of abstract art (specifically non-objective art) that uses optical illusions.
