Richard Anuszkiewicz Box mounted Op Art Masonite mounted with a wood frame structure- silkscreen or litho print.No signature. Good condition – some very minor wear.It measure 44" x44".Richard Anuszkiewicz trained at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, Ohio (1948–1953), and then with Josef Albers1 at the Yale University School of Art and Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut (1953–1955) where he earned his Masters of Fine Arts.
He was one of the founders and foremost exponents of Op Art, a movement during the late 1960s and early 1970s.3 Victor Vasarely in France and Bridget Riley in England were his primary international counterparts. In 1964, Life magazine called him “one of the new wizards of Op”. Considered a major force in the Op Art movement, Anuszkiewicz is concerned with the optical changes that occur when different high-intensity colors are applied to the same geometric configurations. Most of his work comprises visual investigations of formal structural and color effects, many of them nested square forms similar to the work of his mentor Josef Albers. In his series, “Homage to the Square,” Albers experimented with juxtapositions of color, and Anuszkiewicz developed these concepts further.
