Untitled White Sponge Relief

The Sponge Reliefs for the Gelsenkirchen project were first imagined in white and then blue.
When he sent his fragments to Gelsenkirchen, Yves Klein wrote on 11 January 1958: "I ask you to please accept blue for the whole thing. (...) The continuity of blue is the great style and it has been my ideal for years already".
