Yves Klein by Pierre Restany( Book )

"I have gone beyond the problem of art...For me painting today no longer relates to the eye; it relates to the only thing in us that does not belong to us: our lives." With this statement by Yves Klein, reflecting his passionate commitment to the transformation of modern consciousness, Pierre Restany begins his witness to one of the most extraordinary careers in postwar art. His text for the first time fully documents the artist's life and work." --P. [2] of cover

Botero by Pierre Restany( Book )
4 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in French and English and held by 368 libraries worldwide
Best known for his voluptuous, other-worldly figures, Botero sees distortion of forms as the essence of art, and he often reworks familiar images by artists such as Leonardo, Cezanne, Valezquez and Manet in his own distinctive style. One section of the book is devoted entirely to these "paraphrases", while other chapters focus on self-portraits, nudes, still-lifes, figures and characters, and life in Colombia.--From publisher description

For "documenta 6" in Kassel, Germany, Karavan created the Environment Made of Natural Materials and Memories. Composed of white concrete, wood, trees, stone, and water, the Way of Light (1988) in Seoul's Olympic Park achieves a remarkable balance of urban and natural elements. His Negev Monument (1963-68), constructed of "concrete, desert acacias, and wind" in the barren and hilly desert near Beersheba, has become a sight of pilgrimage for the local people as well as for international art lovers. For the last twelve years he has been working on the design and implementation of a monumental, three-kilometer long project for the satellite town of Cergy-Pontoise outside of Paris
