Artist Victor Vasarely was known for his contributions to the Op Art movement. His influences were taken from Bauhaus design principles, Wassily Kandinsky, and Constructivism. Vasarely’s luminous patterns of squares and circles changed how viewers perceive two-dimensional space. The upcoming Geometric Abstraction auction, presented by Bonhams, highlights several works by Victor Vasarely. In one painting, titled Salgo Positive, the viewer can observe several boxes filled with muted colors. Geometric shapes served as recurring subjects in many of Vasarely’s works.
Offered lots include work from American sculptor and painter Alexander Calder. He redefined the contemporary art scene with his suspended sheet metal and wire sculptures. One available piece, titled Lunar View (Aspect lunaire), is an example of 20th-century geometrical abstraction. Colored with a bright palette, the 1961 painting shows abstract comet-like shapes revolving around a pyramid. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bonhams.
