Historical Description of this artwork
Of his career Agam (Rishon LeZion, 1928-) has stated, “My endeavor has been to create a kind of visual graphic art, existing not only in space, but in time; one in which the form develops and evolves, thus procuring an unforeseeable infinity of plastic situations flowing out of one another.” This vibrant piece conveys a myriad of bright colors, contrasted against a shimmering gold background. Agam lines rows of tiny rectangles, identical in size, horizontally. From top to bottom, the colors gradually shift from light green to burgundy, traveling through the color spectrum to attain this metamorphosis. Agam intermittently disperses black rectangles throughout the work, dispersing the uniform nature of the colored rectangles and providing further color contrast.
This original serigraph with black passé-partout is numbered in pencil from the edition of 27 (6 hors de commerce and 10 artist’s proofs also exist) and hand-signed by Yaacov Agam (Rishon LeZion, 1928-) in blue ink in the lower right.

Yaacov Agam Biography
Yaacov Agam is a truly unique, creative force in the world of art. His works transcend traditional artistic boundaries, propelling him into the forefront of a new art aesthetic. Art critics and art historians in museums and institutions throughout the world have acclaimed him for his inventive, talented genius, bestowing upon him numerous awards and honors. Agam is certainly among the world’s foremost artists, and he is already recognized as influential and important in the history of art.
The son of an Orthodox Rabbi, scholar and writer, Agam was born on May 11, 1928 in Rishon Letzion, Israel. As a child, he began to draw, despite religious proscription against visual expression. Agam’s family recognized his artistic ability and, in 1946, he entered the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Studying with Mordecai Ardon, a former student at the Weimar Bauhaus, he discovered the differences between other cultures which stress the afterlife and the Hebrew culture which emphasizes the present. Because Judaism believes life is dynamic and ever-changing, Agam determined that static paintings were inadequate to express the constantly occurring changes which surround us.
In 1950, upon Ardores recommendation, Agam went to Zurich to study with Johannes Itten at the Kunstgewerbeschule. There, he met Frank Lloyd Wright and Siegfried Giedion, whose ideas on the element of time in art and architecture impressed him. In 1951, Agam moved to Paris, where a number of world-famous Surrealist artists living in France were the first to discover and encourage him. His first one-man exhibition held at Galerie Craven, Paris in 1953, featured kinetic and transformable paintings which invited spectator participation. The show was a critical success and attracted considerable attention in art circles. He is still living in Paris and continues to produce works, currently holding the title of the highest-selling Israeli artist.
