A master of light, Robert M. Cunningham introduces strong diagonal shadows to break down form and imply movement in his series of 1980 US Olympic postage stamp designs. With restraint and a superb sense of abstract design, Cunningham eliminated insignificant details from his art, favoring instead dynamic, streamlined compositions. His masterful paintings of bright spots commemorating the Games' summer and winter events were commissioned by the United States Postal Service.
