Pink/Green Abstract
Gift of Gilbert M. Frimet
This photolithographic print in shades of pink and blue has a series of grids and squares that overlap to create a kind of optical illlusion.
Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (British (modern))
Becoming is Meaning like Nothing is Going
1965 – 1970
Gift of Professor Diane M. Kirkpatrick
At the top of the print, there are three oval shapes, from the left, the first white and the next two black. Undulating horizontal black and white lines create a rectangular section at the center of the composition, interrupted to create other geometric shapes. There are light grey, black, and white triangles and squares at the bottom of the image. Overall, the background is a solid grey. The print is signed in pencil (l.r.) "Vasarely-" and numbered in ink (l.l.) "70/150".
