Victor Vasarely (1906-1997)

75 x 12 x 12in (190.3 x 30.5 x 30.5cm)
Vasarely's fascination with spatial illusion (what he called "kinetic plasticity") eventually led him to create three-dimensional sculptures of which Talia, was his largest and most ambitious. Created in 1987, when the artist was 80 years old, the sheer complexity of the stenciling and hand-painting led to the creation of only 30 works, rather than the 100 planned (although the artist numbered each one from the edition of 100).
