Richard Anuszkiewicz Art

American

“I’m interested,” Richard Anuszkiewicz (1930–2020) once said, “in making something romantic out of a very, very mechanistic geometry.” Anuszkiewicz sought to achieve this romance through works juxtaposing vibrant colors in geometric configurations. The perceptual effects he created helped define the American Op art movement.

Anuszkiewicz studied color theory at Yale under Josef Albers and was greatly influenced by Albers’s approach. “The image in my work has always been determined by what I wanted the color to do,” Anuszkiewicz explained in a 1974 catalogue. “Color function becomes my subject matter, and its performance is my painting.”

He departed from his mentor, however, in the pulsating, illusory qualities he gave his work. One of his most famous paintings, Deep Magenta Square (1978), although similar in composition to Albers’s “Homage to the Square” series, is distinctly Op art in the way the striations surrounding the central square seem to vibrate and jump off the canvas.

Anuszkiewicz spent his entire career exploring optical effects through the manipulation of line and color, producing spectacular and timeless pieces of art. “Working with basic ideas will always be exciting,” he said in 1977. “And if a color or form is visually exciting in any profound sense, it will be that way in 10 or 20 years from now.”

Near and Far Acuity, Mid Century Modern Op Art painting from historic exhibition
By Richard Anuszkiewicz
Located in New York, NY
Richard Anuszkiewicz Near and Far Acuity, 1957 Gouache and watercolor painting Hand signed and dated 1957 by Richard Anuszkiewicz on the right front Frame included Anuszkiewicz' artworks from the late 1950s are rarely found on the market. This historic painting is one of the works that helped launch the artist's career. It was done in 1957 - the year the artist arrived in New York. Near and Far Acuity has been removed from its original frame, and re-framed in an elegant wood frame with conservation materials and UV plexiglass. The original gallery label from The Contemporaries has been preserved and affixed to the new backing, and the collector who acquires this work will also be provided with a copy of the original receipt - signed by Karl Lunde (director of the Contemporaries and author of a major monograph on the artist). Measurements: Frame: 32 x 28 x 2 inches Artwork: 21 x 25 inches This work was first exhibited in the groundbreaking, and career-making 1960 exhibition at The Contemporaries gallery (New York, February 29, 1960 - March 19, 1960) and was featured in the exhibition catalogue, shown in the images here. In his essay entitled "Richard Anuszkiewicz: Color Precisionist" by art historian John T. Spike, he writes, "In the spring of '57, Richard Anuszkiewicz left Ohio for good. "I was ready. I came to New York with a substantial amount of work. I was ready to go around to the galleries and I was prepared because I really had something. I had an idea. I had a series of paintings that showed this idea and I felt good about it and I felt now that's the only place for me to be." A friend helped him get a job touching up the plaster models of classical temples and statues in the Junior Museum of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He took off six months the next year to travel around Europe in a Volkswagen, also seeing some places in North Africa. "When I came back, I remember taking my work around to the galleries and receiving interesting comments — positive comments from the various people. But Abstract Expressionism was very popular. My things were very hard-edged, very strong in color — a use of color that nobody was using. Everybody would say. 'Oh, they are nice, but so hard to look at. They hurt my eyes". Leo Castelli considered him seriously but the gallery was developing a specialization in pop artists like Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg. "I can remember going to Martha Jackson and having her look at the work and she would put her hands straight out in front of her and block out parts of the painting with her hand and she'd say, mmm no rest areas." He finally caught on with The Contemporaries Gallery in the fall of 1959. The gallery at 992 Madison Avenue mainly represented new European talent. Karl Lunde, the gallery director, saw some of his canvases hanging...

By Richard Anuszkiewicz
Located in New York, NY
Richard Anuszkiewicz Soft Satellite Red, 1981 Silkscreen on wove paper Signed, dated and numbered 53 from the edition of 100 in pencil by the artist on the front. Bears label from Metzenbaum campaign on back of frame Vintage metal period frame included Terrific 1980s Op Art silkscreen, pencil signed and numbered from the limited edition of only 100. This work is framed in its original vintage frame, and bears the label from the campaign for Metzenbaum for Senator - the longtime Democratic Senator from the state of Ohio, along with a biographical blurb on the artist. Don't forget that Anuszkiewicz studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art in the 1950s before studying with Albers at Yale - so it is not surprising that he would contribute this work several decades later to support a liberal politician from Ohio - where he once studied. (Anuszkiewicz was born in Eerie Pennsylvania). Measurements: Framed: 36 x 36 x 0.5 inches Artwork: 35 x 35 inches Provenance: Originally sold to raise funds for Senator Metzenbaum's campaign.

By Richard Anuszkiewicz
Located in Beachwood, OH
Richard Anuszkiewicz (American, 1930-2020) Red with Green, 1990 Silkscreen on paper Signed and dated lower right, numbered 8/20 lower left 13.75 x 14.25 inches 23.75 x 24 inches, framed Richard Anuszkiewicz was born in Erie, Pennsylvania to Polish immigrants. While at the Cleveland Institute of Art, he studied plein-air painting with Henry Hensche. After winning a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship in 1953, Anuszkiewicz attended Yale University where he studied under Josef Albers. While at Yale he studied alongside fellow Cleveland Op artist Julian Stanczak. After receiving his M.F.A. at Yale, Anuszkiewicz went on to Kent State University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education. At just age 23, his work was exhibited at the May Show at the Cleveland Institute of Art. He was given his first solo show in March 1960 in New York. Because of his early success, Anuszkiewicz had the freedom to pursue his ideas creatively. Anuszkiewicz was one of the leading artists of the Op Art movement during the 1960s and 1970s. His style is distinctive for its high-intensity colors that he applies to geometric configurations. Many of Anuszkiewicz works are reminiscent of Josef Albers paintings...

Translumina
By Richard Anuszkiewicz
Located in Palm Desert, CA
A painting by Richard Anuszkiewicz. "Translumina" is a geometric abstract, acrylic on wood painting executed teal, blue, violet and black by American Op Artist Richard Anuszkiewicz. The work is signed in black acrylic paint, verso, "Richard Anuszkiewicz 1988." Anuszkiewicz’ canvases depict tight geometric shapes in vivid colours that seem to shift under the eye. Anuszkiewicz belongs to the small number of great artists who construct their life's work with all the hallmarks of a series: lucidity, progress, and, above all, depth. Like his mentor Josef Albers, like Piet Mondrian — like Giorgio Morandi, just to name a representational painter — Anuszkiewicz focuses his vision on the limitless possibilities of a single theme. In his case, the theme is not a single motif...
