Catalogue Note

The authenticity of the present work has been confirmed by Pierre Vasarely, President of the Fondation Vasarely, universal legatee and the moral right holder of Victor Vasarely. This work will be included in the forthcoming 'Catalogue Raisonné de l’Oeuvre Peint de Victor Vasarely,' which is currently being compiled by the Fondation Vasarely, Aix-en-Provence. 

Strategically arranged geometric shapes and a dynamic use of color to portray depth are what make French-Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely’s “visual illusions” world-renowned. Varsarely is commonly known as the father of the Op Art Movement. ‘Homenaje a Malevich’ is a nod to Russian avant-garde artist and theorist Kazimir Malevich, who is best known for his work ‘Black Square.’ We can see the influence of 'Black Square' in ‘Homenaje a Malevich’ through the use, destruction, and expansion of the traditional black square.
