Catalogue Note

"Early abstract artists such as Malevich as well as Mondrian, Kandinsky and Albers explored the use of black and white in their art and critical writings. They realized its visual impact as a vehicle to achieve the essence of form and also to convey strong emotions(...) Vasarely, like other artists at this time, understood its potential"
