The Fondation Vasarely is still in a poor state of repair with paint peeling off the artworks and the walls. A multi-venue exhibition entitled Multiplicite has amazing works but the catalogue won't be ready until after the show. Sad really.

Even if you are not a experienced art lover it is worth to visit the Vasarely Foundation. Each work has opportunities to study, although they look very simple at first sight. Public attention is needed to keep the museum running and renovating.

Visited with kids (aged 6 and 7). All enjoyed it but it's a bit expensive for a relatively small museum, and the place is not very welcoming, both because the exterior is very dreary despite the architecture and because the staff were very unfriendly. Avons...More

Huge and impressive works of art (and illusion), combining artistic visions with excellent craftsmanship, as some of the hanging tapestries demonstrate. Nowadays much of it can probably be replicated by basic visual software packages - Victor Vasarely had to use his imagination and understanding of...More

A small gallery of the work of Vasarely very thought provoking and cleaver his ability to play with the mind is excellent.

Vasarely was a master of OPArt using many different mediums. Truly an amazing visual experience born in a world before computers. Just trying to figure how he created these is an education itself.
