Pieter van Noort

Pieter van Noort
1602-1672
Dutch artist

Pieter van Noort was born in 1602 in the Netherlands, where he lived and worked until his death in 1672. His body of work consist primarily of trompe l’oeil still lives and genre scenes. His still lives often focus on the subject of hunting with dead birds and fish, which have just been killed. These dead animals are often accompanied the implements of hunting and fishing including guns, fishing rods and baskets and hunting dogs. His works are in the collections of major museums in the Netherlands including the Dordrecht Museum and the Rijksmuseum.

Victor Vasarely

Victor Vasarely
1908-1997
French/Hungarian affiliated Op-art, abstract expressionist

French painter and printmaker of Hungarian birth, Vasarely was one of the leading figures in the development of geometric abstraction known as Op art, popular in Europe and the USA during the 1960s. He studied in Budapest at the Academy of Painting (1925-7) and under Alexander Bortnyk (1893-1977) at the Mühely Academy, also known as the Budapest Bauhaus (1929-30). In 1930 he moved to Paris and worked as a graphic designer for the next decade and was able to commit himself seriously to the task of devising a new pictorial language in the period following World War II. After what he regarded as a false start in 1944-6, he began the process of lengthy and methodical abstraction from particular features of his environment that resulted in his pure and individual style of the 1960s.
