The exhibition devoted to Victor Vasarely by the Centre Pompidou is the occasion for Galerie Deroyan to put forward the interest of the master of Op Art for textile.
The subject is not so much what is represented than the movement and the transformation of the artwork created by the vision of the viewer. This artistic trend is born at the instigation of Denise René who organized the exhibition Mouvement in 1955. Her collaboration with Vasarely, whom she meets in the 1930's, will be long and prolific. When Denise René joins together with Tabard to weave tapestries after works by her iconic artists, Vasarely naturally occupies a special place. He will be one of the most prolific artists, with more than 60 cartoons between 1951 and 1976. The gallery La Demeure will also supervise editions of carpets after Vasarely's artworks.
Vasarely wants its art to play a social role, to be accessible to all. He thus promotes multiples and will then collaborate with other manufactories, such as Pinton, for the edition of tapestries after his work.
