"Born in Hungary [Vasarely] arrived in Paris in 1930 where he worked in advertising while carrying out the pictorial research that made him famous: abstract painting, oriented toward kinetic art, creating optical illusions with his cubes. The only poster he did for Air France is a singular work in his total production" (Air France p. 98). Air France p. 98, Airways p. 6, Huhne p. 259.
