Art Brokerage: Richard Anuszkiewictz American Artist: B. 1930. Richard Anuszkiewicz trained at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, Ohio (1948- 1953), and then with Josef Albers at the Yale University School of Art and Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut (1953-1955) where he earned his Masters of Fine Arts. He was one of the founders and foremost exponents of Op Art, a movement during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Victor Vasarely in France and Bridget Riley in England were his primary international counterparts. In 1964, Life magazine called him "The New Wizard of Op." More recently, while reflecting on a New York City gallery show of Anuszkiewicz's from 2000, the New York Times art critic Holland Cotter described Anuszkiewicz's paintings by stating, "The drama -- and that feels like the right word -- is in the subtle chemistry of complementary colors, which makes the geometry glow as if light were leaking out from behind it." Anuszkiewicz has exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Florence Biennale and Documenta, and his works are in permanent collections internationally.
