Historical Description

Vasarely's skill in creating a sense of the three-dimensional through the use of visual effects is apparent in this work with a combination of recessed and protruding geometrical shapes. Bold black, white, and blue hues accentuate the feeling of volume and space apparent in this marvelous relief. The geometric shapes of circles, squares, and diamonds guide our eye throughout the composition, encouraging us to explore the three dimensional optical effect before us. The total effect of this play on color and shape is visually stunning and impressive in the amount of thought and skill put into the arrangement of design elements.

This original porcelain Rosenthal relief has been hand signed by Victor Vasarely (Pécs, 1906 - Paris, 1997) on a label affixed to the reverse. Published by Rosenthal out of an edition of 75, this work is numbered from the edition of 75 in black ink on the label, just beneath the signature.
