About the Book
Richard Anuszkiewicz trained at the Cleveland Institute of Art before receiving his masters of Fine Arts from Yale University, where he studied under Josef Albers. Considered one of the founders and major forces of the 1960’s and 70’s Op-Art movement, Anuszkiewicz’s work provokes optical transformations that result from both the primary and high intensity colors he applies to his geometric configurations. Anuszkiewicz’s work focuses on the effects of structure and full intensity color when juxtaposed.
A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition with an essay written by Professor Emeritus at The Sorbonne and Director of the Musée d'Orsay, Serge Lemoine.
