Victor Vasarely (Hungarian, 1906 - 1997) Attributed: Op Art Postcard. Hand signed in ink, unframed. This item is accompanied by a document from autograph expert Herman Darvick. From editions du Griffon, Neuchatel-Suisse, printed in Switzerland.

He moved to Paris in 1930, where he worked successfully as a commercial graphic artist. All the while, he was researching the optical and emotional opportunities of several different graphical methods. He came to the result that geometrical means can create sensual perceptions that convey new ideas about space, matter and energy. He created an independent geometric abstraction whose variations lead to image patterns with kinetic effects.

5.75 x 4 inches card.

Private collection, Madison, Wisconsin, USA.
