A retrospective on the career of one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, Victor Vasarely (1906 – 97), considered the father of Pop art. Vasarely’s multi-coloured body of work is inscribed in the collective memory, both in France and internationally. Known for his talent as a painter, his theories arising from the Bauhaus movement, and his advertising graphic design, Vasarely challenged easel painting in order to develop an art form “in step with its time.” Vasarely’s prolific career, based in Europe in the 1950s, and the historical realities of his times are related by numerous eloquent figures. A portrait of an innovative mind.
