After the end of the Second World War Vasarely was fascinated by the pictorial language of Tachisme short period of time, soon he returned back to geometric abstraction.

Vasarely's ingenious way of suggestion of space, using squares, diamonds, ellipses, trapezoids and stripe effects based on the idea of form and colour is not considered separately, but as a unit, as a "unité plastique". He found out that the quiet abstract compositions could be translated into vibrant and colourful patterns when repeated several times, the individual geometric elements, thereby turning each to some degree or reflected. A high degree of uniformity distinguishes this work as well as a brilliant visual effect.
