There is more to Yves Klein than his famous blue-discover the many facets of his pioneering oeuvre in this new standard reference work on the art of the grand master of abstraction.
Yves Klein (1928-1962) is seen as the guardian of two traditions: the provocative tradition of Duchamp and the mystic tradition of Malevitsch. His complex and spectacular life and work, and the influence and controversy he generated in his own lifetime, make him one of the 20th century's most exciting artists. This publication presents his work for the first time in the context of the dramatic social, philosophical and political upheavals of the postwar era. The text by Sidra Stich not only examines the work of Yves Klein, but also analyses his ideas, writings, performances, and advertising campaigns. Interviews with over 50 people who knew Klein well and worked with him provide a wealth of information shedding new light on many aspects of the art and life of this brilliant personality. Moreover, his work is compared with the concepts of his contemporaries in Japan, America, Italy, Germany and France. This lavishly illustrated volume will appeal as much to the specialist as it will to the interested layperson.
