Yves Klein : long live the immaterial by Gilbert Perlein( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and Italian and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a moment when the progress of technology brings the first half of the twentieth century to the depths of the Middle Ages or the late Empire, the message I bear within me is that of life and nature, and I would have you share it, in as much as my companions will know my thinking even better than myself: for they are thousands, they will reflect it thousands of times, while I myself am only one... At the crossroads of light where I have arrived, there are but two possible paths: the path of obscurity, withdrawal, maceration, meditation, and renunciation, and the more arduous and glorious path of sacrifice to the community

David Hammons, Yves Klein by Heidi Zuckerman( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a compelling examination of the surprising conceptual and visual correspondences between the works of these two pivotal artists known for their innovative practices. Klein (1928-1962) was a major figure in postwar art who opened up new possibilities for material, conceptual and performative expression, often touching on the metaphysical. Hammons (born 1943) is a conceptual artist whose works in performance, installation, sculpture, printmaking and other media confront contemporary realities with an often hard-hitting wit. This publication aims not to draw out any notion of influence or direct correlation between these bodies of work, but rather to elucidate a resonance between two artists who both engage transformative processes to invest the humblest of everyday materials with deep aesthetic significance. 0Exhibition: Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, U.S.A.

Yves Klein : catalogue of editions and sculptures edited = catalogue des éditions et des sculptures éditées by Jean-Paul Ledeur( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and French and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his all-too brief career, the French artist Yves Klein created an air of excitement and risk that has rarely been seen before or since. Klein was not afraid to offend or to be oblique; he challenged and questioned everything he encountered, driven by the belief that the truth was his own. The result of this determination was an oeuvre of editions, manifestoes, paintings, and sculptures that were years ahead of their time. This catalogue raisonne exhaustively documents the entirety of Klein's editions with striking color reproductions--the emphasis is, of course, on Klein's unparalleled shades of blue--and an essay by French critic Pierre Restany that rises to the occasion of speaking about Klein's awe-inspiring body of work as a whole."--from google books
Yves Klein : incandescence by Frédéric Prot( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Italian and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

"Yves Klein (1928-1962) was a truly visionary artist. The spectacular works and actions of the French artist and judo master attracted worldwide attention, which was further magnified by his untimely death. The product of a career that spanned a mere seven years, his multifaceted oeuvre anticipated such phenomena as happening and performance as well as Land, Body, and Conceptual Art. Art had no boundaries for Yves Klein. He became involved in architecture - at the practical level as the designer of the music theater in Gelsenkirchen and as a theorist with his ideas for air architecture. He also explored both aspects of immateriality and zones of pictorial sensibility." "The volume featuring full-color illustrations of more then one hundred works covers all of Klein's creative phases, from the first Monochromes in different colors to his famous blue paintings (I.K.B. - International Klein Blue) to his sponge reliefs and sculptures, the controversial anthropometries in which Klein used female models as "living brushes," his gold-leaf Monogolds and his last experiments with fire and the elements of nature." "Articles by seven authors shed light on the artist and his work from different perspectives. Comments on the man and his art by friends and contemporaries as well as a detailed biography accompanied by numerous documentary photographs showing Yves Klein in his working and living environment round out this presentation."--Jacket

Yves Klein by Pierre Restany( Book )

8 editions published in 1982 in 3 languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
