Yves Klein by Sidra Stich( Book )
22 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yves Klein is one of the most extraordinary and influential figures in post-war avant-garde art. In less than a decade - up until his untimely death in 1962 - he forged a career and built up a body of work that together have influenced and inspired contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists worldwide. Klein sought in his art to liberate the senses, to heighten our sensibility and to intensify our experience of life. In this comprehensive review of his art and ideas, Sidra Stich examines the full range of his diverse creative output - his paintings and sculptures, installations, meticulously documented performances, his copious writings, and his proposals and drawings for visionary projects - and sets them within the context of the art of the time to assess Klein's originality and his legacy

French painter Yves Klein (1928-1962) stands as one of the most exciting artists of the 20th century. A founding member of the New Realism movement, he was also a pioneer in performance art and installations, and a forerunner of body art, land art, and conceptual art. During his meteoric eight-year career, Klein expressed his vision through a wide range of media, including pure colour (notably a deep, bright blue now known as Yves Klein Blue), architecture, sculpture, literature, and music. This book looks afresh at Klein's works, and especially those that involve fire. Klein used fire to represent the mysterious and intangible elements of the world: He believed that an artist's transfiguration of reality could change a viewer's personal values, and his aim was to usher in an age of happy and fulfilled humankind. Here, images of his spectacular mur de feu or "wall of fire," along with his monochromes, monogolds, drawings, letters, and articles, as well as pictures of Klein producing his works, are testament to the artist's belief in the spiritual power of art

"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."--Page 2 of cover
