Catalogue Note

Wojciech Fangor began his artistic career in Poland as a Social Realist after World War II. Dissatisfied with painting in a propagandistic mode, Fangor co-created the Polish School of Posters, which fused fine art and design to create graphic posters. With the death of Stalin, came a new permissiveness that allowed the restless artist to move further away from orthodox painting to explore vivid abstraction. Fangor’s Op Paintings of the late 1950s gained him recognition in Europe and through-out the 1960s his work was shown at US institutions such as MoMA. In 1970, the artist had a one man show at the Guggenheim.
