Yves Klein devotes himself to Blue
Yves Klein was one of those individuals, an artist who contributed to change in the art world of post war Europe.
He favoured the colour blue using it as the foundation for his art… to maintain the ‘authenticity of the pure idea’. Reminiscent of the popular lapis lazuli seen in Early Renaissance painting, this particular blue eventually became known as International Klein Blue. Magnifique.
