All Italian, these artists are among the founders or prime representative of the Optical Art and Kinetic Art. An movement emerged in the early 50s in Europe and South America that rose quickly in the early 60s also in the U.S., peaked with “The Responsive Eye” exhibition at New York MOMA in 1965, and then faded within a few years. On both sides of the ocean, it has had a long and outsized influence on visual art, architecture and design. In the last few years, the art world has witnessed a deluge of Op and Kinetic art centered exhibitions by major international museums and galleries and the markets took notice.
