  • Yves Klein : l'artiste qui voulait tout peindre en bleu (et s'en fichait)
    Phaidon, Paris, France, 2019
At some point in his life, Yves Klein decided that, from that moment, he would paint pictures of one color: Blue. But not just any Blue, Yves wanted a unique Blue, his Blue, the Blue Klein! To paint his works Yves used wind, rain, fire, even human bodies, inventing the Body art. He also composed a symphony of a single note and used photography to challenge gravity: he always managed to find new ways to amaze his audience.
