Price on Request
Created in c. 1975 this original, 100% wool tapestry is the only example from the rare, uncompleted edition of tapestries featuring this composition by Yvaral. Original authentication documentation accompanies this work, certified by Ms. Michèle Vasarely.
Hexagons are delineated in infinite numbers up above and angular, triangle-compositions create a 3-D visual illusion attributed to this unique Op Artist. Yvaral’s work is best known for the gridded effects he creates that break up an image or become the entire image itself as seen with this work. Completely abstract, the repetition of grey, black, and white causes the viewer’s eye to play tricks on them as the focus moves from the foreground and into the horizon line.

Born into the Op Art movement, Jean Pierre Vasarely Yvaral latched onto the idea of geometry in the artistic process. His works carry a magnificent otherworldly quality while at the same time remaining rooted in basic mathematical principles. Three dimensional forms explode of his canvases, and he brings this energy into his portraits as well.
