Yves Klein: Painter of Space

yves-klein

One of the 20th century’s most influential artists was YVES KLEIN.

From 1954, YVES KLEIN took the European art scene by storm with his creative pursuits in paintings, sculptures, photography, music, theater, film, architecture and even theoretical writing. YVES even developed his own shade of blue known as International Klein Blue and often described himself as a “painter of space”.

On display at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Yves Klein: With the Void, Full Powers is the first major retrospective of YVES work in the United States in 30 years. The exhibition features all of YVES major works including Anthropometries, Cosmogonies, the fire paintings and sponge reliefs in the recognizable blue monochromes. My favorite part of the Hirshhorn exhibit are YVES conceptual projects including letters highlighting his tragically short artistic career.
