Bridget Riley: A Very, Very Person. The Early Years
In 1962, Bridget Riley was virtually unknown in the art world, and yet with the opening of The Responsive Eye exhibition of abstract painting at the MoMA, the artist and her painting Current became an instant hit. This book tracks her sudden rise to fame and the challenges she faced on the way.
Following her first solo show in New York, Riley became an overnight sensation for her op art and her distinctive look, which became a fashion craze thanks in part to a feature in Vogue magazine. Author Paul Moorhouse takes us on a journey from Riley’s wartime childhood in the Cornish countryside to her arrival in swinging 60s London.
An illuminating biography, A Very Very Person explores Riley’s celebrated career and delves into the struggles and personal challenges she faced on her way to becoming a renowned artist of the op art movement.
