It was in 1947 that Yves Klein met Claude Pascal at the judo club in Nice.

Claude Pascal reports their meeting: "In 1947, faced with this idiotic sea where the old men of France and art are consumed, we had our twenties, Yves Klein, Arman and me. We wore shirts smeared with bare hands and feet and fed on the gold and iron in the air. "

On the beach of Nice, the three friends choose to "share the world": to Arman returns the land and its riches, to Claude Pascal the air, and to Yves the sky and its infinity.
