Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar de internationale kunststroming die halverwege de jaren 60 van de 20ste eeuw bloeide in Europa en Amerika. De stijl kenmerkt zich door de zorgvuldige bewerking van krachtige, sterk contrasterende vormen en kleuren om hiermee de suggestie van beweging, trillingen of chromatische spanning te creëren. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere al movimiento de arte internacional que floreció en Europa y América a mediados de la década de 1960.
