More On Bridget Riley's Legacy

During the early eighties, Bridget Riley was asked by Rambert, the director of the Ballet ‘Colour Moves’, to design sets for the ballet. She also did a series of murals for the Royal Liverpool Hospital.

She was appointed the Companion of Honour in Britain in 1999, and received the Praemium Imperiale in 2003. She won the Kaiserring of Goslar in 2009, the 12th Rubens Prize in 2012, and became the first woman to receive the Dutch Sikkens Prize in that same year.

She wrote on several artists and her work was an inspiration for many others such as Ross Bleckner, Philip Taaffe, and Diana Thater. She also was the curator for several shows at different galleries.

You can still admire her work in exhibitions all over the world and her art is included in many collections some of which can be found in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.

I don't think we have heard the last of Bridget Riley or seen all of her work. It may well be that the best is yet to come, although I don't see how that would be possible; her work is already among and considered to be some of the best!
