Grey Diamond by Ilya Bolotowsky, 1955

The wall placard has a great quote from the artist:

“Nowadays, when paintings torture the retina, when music gradually destroys the eardrum, there must all the more be a need for an art that searches for new ways to achieve harmony and equilibrium.”

Ilya Bolotowsky lived from 1907 – 1981 and worked with Neo-Plasticism; if you are not familiar refer to the late works of Piet Mondrian.
