Biography, exh. history and bib. of Yves Klein
A monograph for the Tate London's 1974 collage kind of exhibition, brought together by fragments from the internal world of the eponymous Yves Klein. From the archive of works, photographs, documents, and personal perspectives generously shared by Klein's widow, this exhibition catalog strives to reveal Yves Klein the practicing artist, rather than Klein the idea and influence he'd so quickly become. The introduction makes it plain: "Who better to write about Yves Klein that Klein himself?" And the catalog continues, chronologically, with Klein's own personal and critical notes - on his identity as an artist, the social and critical crowd, the discovery of that blueness - leading the way, underlining every page.
Ed. w. selected writings from J & J (Jacques Caumont and Jennifer Gough-Cooper).
Trans. from the French by Barbara Wright.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Yves Klein, The Tate Gallery, London, 20 March – 15 March 1974.
