Lot Essay

L'authenticité de cette œuvre a été confirmée par Pierre Vasarely. Cette œuvre sera incluse dans le catalogue raisonné en préparation par la Fondation Vasarely d’Aix-en-Provence.

« C’est depuis ma prime jeunesse déjà que j’accumule des réseaux de traits tantôt horizontaux ou verticaux, tantôt croisés, figuratifs au départ, abstrait par la suite, sans que je m’interroge sur leur origine ou sur leur signification. »
“Since my earliest youth, I have been accumulating networks of lines, sometimes horizontal or vertical, sometimes in grids, at first representational, later abstract, without asking myself about their origin or meaning.”
Victor Vasarely
