Victor Vasarely (1908-1997)
Inventor of Op Art (without any computer help!), Victor Vasarely, who was born in Hungary and died in France, was a leading artist of the 20th century. His name is associated with a real visual revolution which impacted art, design and the landscapes of our cities. In his works, the mix of shapes, colours and contrasts creates a visual experience that is renewed every time.
Vasarely's desire to bring art within everyone's reach comes with an intimate wish: to nurture the soul of the general public with beauty and poetry.
His perfectionism demands absolute quality. As, according to Vasarely, ‘originals are no more important than their reproductions’.
VICTOR VASARELY and ‘LES EDITIONS DU GRIFFON’
Never before, a publisher and a contemporary artist had the same passion for perfection.
Inseparable from Vasarely and the leading artists of the second half of the 20th century, Éditions du Griffon has always convinced by its non-conformism and unrelenting enthusiasm.
Often published in collaboration with the artists themselves, these monographs are characterised by the quality of their graphic rendering and critical apparatus.
True to the spirit of its founders, ‘Les Éditions du Griffon’ strives to showcase new artists who are the top talents of today.
These portfolios were designed and supervised by Vasarely himself because he wanted to please art lovers. He had discovered that many of them cut the printed plates out of the monographs to frame them and hang them on their walls.
The same concern for quality animated Les Editions du Griffon that took exceptional care with these series of albums.
These are the last available original copies.
