DescriptionRichard Anuszkiewicz is an American artist that helped to pioneer the Op Art movement. Moonbow is a wonderful example of the Op Art pioneered by Anuszkiewicz. Anuszkiewicz was one of the featured artists in the landmark 1965 exhibition, The Responsive Eye, at the Museum of Modern Art that put Op Art on the cultural radar. Anuszkiewicz is concerned with the optical changes of intense colors in geometric configurations, similar to his mentor Josef Albers with whom he studied at Yale University. The New York Times describes his work, "The drama is in the subtle chemistry of complementary colors, which makes the geometry glow as if light were leaking out from behind it.”
