We are excited to announce Op Art, a special sale dedicated to precise and mathematically-based compositions that trick the eye. The Op Art movement of the early 1960s, with its concentric circles, parallel lines and electric colors, created the visual iconography of that decade and has been vastly influential, especially today with a resurgence of interest from both contemporary artists and the public. This sale will feature artists whose techniques create the visual effect of afterimages and the illusion of movement such as Bridget Riley, Julian Stanczak, Josef Albers, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Victor Vasarely, Sol LeWitt and Tauba Auerbach, among others.
