This is a very interesting artwork - made by Victor Vasarely (1907 - 1997) and published as an artwork in Edinburgh, Scotland.
This op-art print consists of two parts. The lower part of the composition is printed on paper - and has an intricate geometric pattern printed in black and white. The top part has the same image printed onto a sheet of clear vinyl in white - and if you moved the top sheet over the bottom one - you could create lots of optical effects. This item is framed (it appears to be the original vintage box frame) - with the black and white image on the backing sheet of the frame - and onto the front (attached to a clear perspex window of the front of the frame) is stuck down the clear sheet with the white image. It looks quite 3-d in nature when viewed.
This very rare Vasarely work was published by the celebrated Scottish artist, Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925 - 2006) at the Wild Hawthorn Press in 1966. He was one of the most innovative and wide-ranging artists working in Scotland. He was born in the Bahamas in 1925 to Scottish parents who returned to Scotland when he was a child.
After a brief spell at Glasgow School of Art, he began his career as a writer and played a leading part in the 'concrete poetry' movement. He is best known for Little Sparta, his home in the Pentland Hills, which he transformed into an original modern conception of a classical garden with sculptures stone inscriptions carefully placed within the landscape.
The details of the publication are printed on the bottom margin.
Dimensions: 57.2 cm x 44.3 cm. Frame is 59.5 x 46.5 x 6 cm
This work is very rare and impressions are very rare. It is in good condition - a little rippling commensurate with age to the white printed film on the perspex to the bottom - but this is stable and just fine - it is all ready just to hang on your wall.
I have taken lots more images of this artwork - these can be forwarded to you if you are interested in acquiring this work.
With its containment within the box frame and its relative fragility - it would probably be best to restrict postage on this special work to the UK only.
