Lecture within the cycle Między figuracją a abstrakcją (Between Figuration and Abstraction) of the Art Transfer Foundation.
The career of Wojciech Fangor, which lasted almost 70 years, consisted of many, often different periods. The best known are his abstract paintings from the 1960s and 1970s, which are part of the op-art that was developing at the time. The early phase of the artist’s work is connected with his fascination with the avant-garde and later with the success of his works from the time of socialist realism. The lecture will, however, focus on his later work, which is less well known but deserves to be more fully explored.
