Hungarian-French artist Victor Vasarely rose to prominence in the art world of the second half of the 20th century, by combining and assembling colours, shapes and visually stunning geometric systems, becoming known as the "grandfather" of optical art, or “op art."
The short-lived movement relied on dazzling abstract designs and was later popularised by English artist Bridget Riley.
Curated by Serge Lemoine, the exhibition gathers Vasarely's abstract paintings from across Europe and provides a comprehensive testimony to his radical and refreshing work.
Tues-Sun 09.30-17.00. Mon closed.
