“The music of colour, that’s what I want” ||
New Work
Bridget Riley

It goes without saying that Bridget Riley is a pioneer of the Op Art movement. Over her 70-year career, she has created geometric works that provide those who gaze at them with an optical illusion.

I am pleased to bring you Sylvan; an edition that embodies the joyful combination of colour and movement that makes Riley the ground-breaking innovator that she is.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reply to this email and I look forward to assisting you further.

Best wishes,


2000 | Screenprint on paper | Edition of 75 | 89 x 61 cm
Signed, dated, titled and numbered by the artist

“It’s very important to establish a dialogue with your own work, [...] My eyesight, my understanding, changes all the time. No two days are alike. I think all painters have experienced that — you can look at something as though you’ve never seen it before.”

(The New York Times, Bridget Riley, Through Her Own Eyes, Karen Rosenberg March 2022.)
