In December 1964 our Museum received Vazareli’s artwork, one of the first that arrived. This artwork has been chosen by Victor himself as an honor to the newly established Museum.


Victor Vasarely (9 April 1906 – 15 March 1997) was a Hungarian-French artist, who is widely accepted as a “grandfather” and leader of the Op art movement. His work titled Zebra, created in 1937, is considered by some to be one of the earliest examples of Op art.
