Description

Richard Anuszkiewicz (American, b. 1930)
 
 
This striking Op Art screenprint on Beckett 90 lb. Hi-White paper with vellum finish was created by Richard Anuszkiewicz, a protege of Josef Albers at the Yale University School of Art who is considered one of the founders of the Op Art movement in the United States. 

It was created in 1965, one of the most influential periods in the Op Art movement, around the time that Anuszkiewicz was featured on the cover of Life Magazine. The work was part of a series of prints created over the years by renowned artists, including Andy Warhol, Helen Frankenthaler, Christo, Willem de Kooning, Louise Bourgeois, Alex Katz and others as a fundraiser for the Paris Review literary publication. This Anuszkiewicz silkscreen was printed by Steve Poleskie of Chiron Press, NYC and published by the Paris Review.
