Bridget Riley (b. 1931) is an influential British abstract painter who came to prominence in the 1960's during the American Op Art movement.

Riley first gained international recognition in 1965 when her work was exhibited in the MoMA group-exhibition "The Responsive Eye". Her paintings which create illusions of movement in graphic patterns were shown alongside works by Victor Vasarely, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Frank Stella, and Ellsworth Kelly.  

In 1968, Riley represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale where she became the first woman, as well as the first contemporary painter, to win the International Prize for painting. 

Riley has participated in many group and solo shows around the world, including major retrospectives at the Tate Britain and National Gallery in London. Her works are in the permanent collections of many of the most prestigious art institutions globally. 

This work was created as a benefit print to celebrate her major exhibition "Bridget Riley: Paintings from the 1960s and 70s" at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 1999. It is a colorful example of Riley's dynamic style which toys with the viewers perceptions to induce simultaneously shifting patterns of form and color for an engaging optical mixture.
