Yves Klein (1928 to 1962), an accelerated life. In seven years, all the risks involved, blue, pink, gold, fire, crossed to approach the immaterial which was his ideal. He died at age 34. From his youth, in Nice, lying on the sand of the beaches, he had decided that the azure of the sky would receive his signature: Yves le Monochrome. Some have seen him as a mystic, an illuminated. This book, based on personal encounters and the questioning of his works, shows that art, according to Yves Klein, can be the springboard of a flight from earth to heaven.
