About the Artwork

This trypthic was executed in 1961 for the exhibition "Monochrome und Feuer" at the Haus Lange Museum, Krefeld. It contains a blue and a pink silkscreen as well as a golden cardboard box that Yves Klein coated with sheetgold

"I did not like the nothing, and it is thus that I met the empty, the deep empty, the depth of the blue."

Yves Klein

The three sheets were rendered in the signature colors of the artist: International Klein Blue, rose and gold (to which Klein added three appliques of gold leaf) and have become iconic examples of the artist's work.

About the Artist

Weng Contemporary Klein Table Bleu Artists Signature Shot

With no formal artistic training, Yves Klein (1928 - 1962) became one of the pioneers of performance, minimal and pop art. In the mid-1950s Klein first exhibited his monochrome paintings in which a canvas was uniformly covered in a single color. His patented shade of blue became Klein's signature color that remains highly acclaimed internaitonally.
