Each year over the course of several decades, famous Op Art pioneer and Josef Albers protege Richard Anuszkiewicz created a different limited edition silkscreen as a holiday card for close personal friends, family, and/or individuals who were influential in his career. This stunning enamel on masonite work is the Annual Edition for 1981. A really stunning piece of geometric Op Art! Anuszkiewicz's Annual Editions were not created for commercial use and were thus quite scarce. This work is signed and dated on the recto (front), and housed in a plexiglass frame with wooden back (see photos). The sheet itself measures 8 inches by 6.25 inches, and the actual image measures 7 inches by 5 inches. Below is a link to the online catalogue of Anuszkiewicz' multiples, which features this work:

About Richard Anuszkiewicz

Combining an interest in the nature of perception with investigations into the visual and psychological resonance of color, Richard Anuszkiewicz produces paintings whose vibrant colors and geometric shapes seem to pop and pulsate off of the canvas. A student of Josef Albers and one of the leading practitioners of Op art and geometric abstraction, Anuszkiewicz explores color and form in his flat, vibrant abstractions, attempting to reveal the malleability of our perceptions of stillness and movement, depth and color.

American, b. 1930, Erie, Pennsylvania
