Peter Stroud was a constructivist and op artist from the United Kingdom who famously burst onto the international art scene of the 1960s when he was chosen to participate in the Museum of Modern Art's groundbreaking show "The Responsive Eye", which introduced Op Art to the American public. The present work was created in the mid 1960s, during that important and historic era. Stroud emigrated to the United States from England after the renowned sculptor Isaac Witkin (a former assistant to Henry Moore) helped him secure a teaching job at Bennington College in Vermont. Stroud's abstract works have been on view in numerous museums including: the Tate Gallery, London, England, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY, the New Jersey State Museum, NJ, the Museum of Modern Art, NY, Princeton University, NJ, the British Museum, England, the Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C., the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, TX, the Rose Art Museum, MA, the Marlborough-Gerson Gallery, NY, and the American Embassy in London.

In addition to his work as an artist, Peter was a professor, mentor, and friend to the students of Maidstone College of Art in London, Bennington College, VT, Rutgers University, NJ, East China Normal University, Shanghai, and the Mason Gross School of Art, NJ.
