  • Yves Klein in the room dedicated to the "Immaterial Pictorial Sensibility"
    Museum Haus Lange, Krefeld, Germany
"This pictorial state, invisible within the gallery space, should provide the best general definition of painting to this day, which is to say, radiance. If the creative process is successful, this invisible and intangible immaterialization of painting should act upon the sensible vehicles or bodies of the visitors to the exhibition much more effectively than ordinary, visible paintings, whether they are figurative, non-figurative, or even monochrome."
Yves Klein, excerpt of « Lecture at the Sorbonne », 1959
