VICTOR VASARELY (1906-1997) “Hang” Signed and Numbered Serigraph

Serigraph by renowned leader of the Op art movement, Victor Vasarely (1906-1997), depicts an illusory field of blue and red circles resolving in a spherical design that occupies the central focus of the print. Widely accepted as the grandfather of Op art, Vasarely utilized precise color and geometric compositions to create illusions of compelling spatial depth. Housed in a silver frame with austere black matting, this serigraph is signed and numbered by Vasarely at the bottom of the print, making for a truly rare addition to the home. About the Artist: Victor Vasarely was born in Pécs on April 9, 1906 and grew up in Pöstény and Budapest. Originally taking up medical studies, Vasarely abandoned medicine in 1927 to learn academic painting, studying at Sándor Bortnyik's private art school, Műhely (or "Workshop"), then widely recognized as Budapest's center of Bauhaus studies. After settling in Paris in 1930, Vasarely worked as a graphic artist before turning to creating art and sculptures using optical illusions. Developing his style of geometric abstract art over the next three decades, Vasarely widely became known as the founder and leader of the so-called “Op art” movement, with numerous museums and galleries collecting his work. After a long and successful career, Vasarely died in 1997, at the age of 90. This lithograph is amongst hundreds of pieces of art that are available at our location in Grandview!
