Lozenge refers to a rhombus with acute angles of 45° to form a diamond. This piece is included in:

A series of oil and acrylic paintings from the mid-1960s [which] drew from Josef Albers, who had taught at Yale during the period 1950–58; these are Tigerman's Op Art experiments with the paradoxical effects created through the medium of geometry.
