Bridget Riley. Ausgewählte Gemälde (1961–1999)
The influential British artist Bridget Riley belongs among the vanguard of European op-art artists. Having explored the artistic techniques of the Neoimpressionist painter Georges Seurat since the late fifties, she developed her own approach to representing optical phenomena, working first in black-and-white and grey, and from 1967 also in colour. The effects she achieved in her early paintings established her reputation as a master of optical art. Bridget Riley´s art hit the very nerve of the time, as may be seen in the popularization of her imagery for commercial purposes both in fashion and graphic design.
The publication is published on the occasion of the exhibition Bridget Riley. Ausgewählte Gemälde (1961–1999) at the Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf (October 31, 1999 – January 9, 2000). With texts by Robert Kudielka, Michael Krajewski, Raimund Stecker and interviews by Ernst Gombrich and Michael Craig-Martin with Bridget Riley.
