Vertigo with Vasarely

Last week, I visited the Victor Vasarely Museum in Pécs, Hungary. For those of you who are unfamiliar with his work, Vasarely is considered one of the most important figures of the Op art (optical art) movement of the 1950's and 1960's. The museum is small, but well-curated. The ticket is not expensive, and for an extra fee, you are allowed to take photos of the artwork. Plus, the souvenirs are rather cheap. The only problem is that the staff is really bad at English and there is no translation of the art titles. You can find some great works of his son and wife there, as well. I would highly recommend this museum to all you art appreciators who like to feel dizzy in a positive way.
