International Klein Blue Collection
Yves klein was the most influential, prominent, and controversial french artist to emerge in the 1950s. He is remembered above all for his use of a single color, the rich shade of ultramarine that he made his own: International Klein Blue. Painter, sculptor and performance artist, his work greatly influenced the development of minimalism.
