Richard created Trois Pilules as part of his “Pilule” series while living in Paris in the mid 1960s. Bernstein drew inspiration from the elements of popular culture around him in typical Pop Art fashion. At the time when Abstract Expressionism and color field painting were at their peak, this series was a stark contrast to those movements. He debuted this series at the famed Iris Clert Gallery and later at the Paolo Barozzi Galleria in Venice Italy where famed collector Peggy Guggenheim was the guest of honor. Although Trois Pilules is beautiful on its own, Blanc et Noir makes a perfect companion.
