Descripción:

33 & [2] pages; Publisher's color pictorial wrappers [designed by the artist]. A clean, tight copy, with a minor ding at the bottom of the narrow spine and a tiny abrasion to the front cover. An important catalogue from 1970, the first solo exhibition of a Polish artist at the Guggenheim Museum. "Margit Rowell . in concert with the artist, selected the works, mounted the show, and prepared this catalogue." Wojciech Fangor [1922-2015] was born in Warsaw and had a long career as a painter, graphic designer and poster artist, sculptor, author of architectural projects and urban space projects, and as a set designer. He studied privately with Tadeusz Pruszkowski and Felicjan Szczesny Kowarski during the WWII years (1940-44) and in 1946 he received a diploma in absentia at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw -- (where he was assistant professor between 1953 and 1961). In 1949, Polish authorities declared that realism was the only legitimate form of art. Consequently, Fagor made a deft transition from impressionism and abstraction into realism. He worked as a painter, but also became known as co-founder of the Polish School of Poster Art. In the period 1953-61, he designed about 100 posters and created numerous drawings for the Zycie Warszawy daily. Fangor expanding his oeuvre to create installations, such as the 1958 Study of Space exhibition at the New Culture Salon in Warsaw, and architectural projects, such as the renovation of the interior of the restaurant at the capital's horseracing track, the design of the Central Department Store in Warsaw, the Polish Pavilion at the World Exhibition in Brussels and the interiors of the Central Train Station (Sródmiescie) in Warsaw. His work attracted International attention, leading to an new life in the west. In 1965-66, he taught at the Bath Academy of Art in Corsham, Wiltshire, England, and from 1966-83, he led classes at Farleigh Dickinson University in Madison, N.J. in the US. In 1967-68, he conducted guest lectures at the Faculty of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. He became a leading representative of the up-and-coming Op-art movement. In his work he focused on issues of color and light. Showing light, its spectrum, the chromatic effects of its separation became Fangor's primary aim in his paintings. He produced canvasses composed of colored circles and waves. With pulsating, vibrating contours, his forms generated an impression of movement and various optical illusions. So, this Guggenheim Museum catalogue is not just a unique document of a Polish artist, but a substantial and early contribution to the International Op-art movement. In the mid-'70s, the artist returned to figurative painting, and, eventually, to his native Poland. He had a long career, even after a 1990 Retrospective Exhibition - 50 years of painting, at the Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw. Late in life, Fangor designed murals for the station walls of the second line of the Warsaw Underground in 2014. At the time of his death in October, 2015, he resided in Bledów, a village near Warsaw. N° de ref. de la librería
