Bridget Riley

Bridget Riley was born in London. She studied at Goldsmiths College and the Royal College of Art in the 1950s. The exhibition of American Abstract Expressionism (Tate, 1959) had a major influence on her work and exhibited at a key Op Art exhibition at Museum of Modern Art, New York (1965). She was the first English contemporary artist and the first woman, to win the International Prize at the Venice Biennale (1968). Since then she has exhibited internationally. In 1995 she co-curated a major Mondrian exhibition at the Tate and became a Companion of Honour in 1999. Major retrospectives were held in London (2003) and Paris (2008). From 2010–2011 Riley exhibited new works at the National Gallery, London.
