About the Artwork

Probably best known for his signature shade of blue and for the monochrome paintings he created, Yves Klein also made a foray into the world of furniture design. This iconic table is from an edition that was begun in 1963 under the supervision of Yves Klein’s widow, Rotraut Klein-Moquay, based on a model he designed in 1961.

"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

Klein designed the table in three different versions. Most common to his work was the International Klein Blue (IKB) pigment, but he also did a version using rose pigment, as well as gold leaf. Every table has a signed and numbered placard of authenticity issued by the Yves Klein estate affixed to the underside.

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.
