Bridget Riley was the founder of the "Op-Art" painting movement in the 1960's. This is the original poster from her first European retrospective, covering the period pre-1961-70. The poster is in excellent condition.
This exhibition traced the artist's development from black -and- white works to her then new colour works incorporating only two or three colours. The exhibition opened at the Hannover Kunstverein and travelled on to Bern, Dusseldorf, Turin with a final triumphant presentation in London at the Hayward Gallery where it attracted an unprecedented 40,000 visitors. This poster which is now over 40 years old, strongly inscribes an aesthetic which continues to posit the 'contemporary' in both art and design.
