About This Piece
The Art
The phrase "body of art" aptly describes Yves Klein’s “Anthropometrie” series. Klein (1928 – 1962) employed female models as “living paintbrushes” for the paintings, which were named after the study of human body measurements. Clad only in the artist's patented International Klein Blue paint, the models made imprints of their bodies on large sheets of paper. Klein often staged the creation of these works as elaborate spectacles for an audience, who imbibed blue cocktails and listened to a performance of his "Monotone Symphony," a solitary note played for 20 minutes, followed by 20 minutes of silence.

This art print displays sharp, vivid images with a high degree of color accuracy. A member of the versatile family of art prints, this high-quality reproduction represents the best of both worlds: quality and affordability. Art prints are created on paper similar to that of a postcard or greeting card using a digital or offset lithography press.

The Artist
Painting with only one color, French artist Yves Klein (1928 – 1962) created complex and enigmatic works of art. He painted monochromes so that only the purity and absoluteness of color would make its impact without what he called the “prison grating” of lines. Shocked and disheartened when an exhibition of his monochromes was misunderstood, the artist decided to paint all future works in only blue and developed his own patented shade called International Klein Blue. He also explored the theme of the infinite by creating paintings, books and musical compositions entirely devoid of content. Klein’s painting “RE I” sold for a staggering $6,716,000 at Christie’s in 2000.
