Wojciech Fangor was one of the most distinctive painters to emerge from postwar Poland.
An upcoming auction sale of Fangor’s work is announced in The Telegraph (7 June 2016) by their influential critic Colin Gleadell.
Known for his blurred circles, amoebas and cloud shapes in dense, saturated colors that seemed to throb and swirl, Fangor first became known in the United States in the 1960s, when his work was included in two group exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 1970, he had a one-man show at the Guggenheim Museum.
His work, perched midway between Color Field painting and Op Art, dazzled critics, notably John Canaday of The New York Times, who reviewed the work in rapturous tones.
In 1965, MoMA included Mr. Fangor, with 98 other artists, in “The Responsive Eye,” a comprehensive survey of Op Art that traveled around the United States.
