Victor Vasarely is widely regarded as a forefather of the Op art movement. Indeed, Vaserely is quoted as stating: “I have faith in the advent of a polychrome and multidimensional language technological art that will radiate as the first purely visual language void of any anecdotic or literary references." He painted EG-1-2 two years after his inclusion in the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The Responsive Eye.
