Fondation Victor Vasarely information
This gallery, 4km west of the city, was designed by Hungarian optical-art innovator Victor Vasarely (1906–97). A masterpiece, its 16 interconnecting six-walled galleries were purpose built to display and reflect the patterning of the artist’s 44 acid-trip-ready, floor-to-ceiling geometric artworks. Take bus 4 or 6 to the Vasarely stop.
