Yves Klein

One of the most influential figures of the post-war era, Yves Klein’s (1928-1962) career was marked by extraordinary creativity. His bold attitude to art and life influenced later generations of artists and foresaw important artistic movements including pop, conceptual, installation and performance art.

Embracing painting, sculpture, performance, theatre, music, film, architecture and judo, Klein took the European art world by storm. Klein’s vision was to express absolute immateriality and infinite space through pure colour. The artist is perhaps best known for his own invented colour, International Klein Blue (IKB) used across many of his works.

This exhibition brings together major works never before seen in the UK alongside his Anthropometry paintings, Fire Paintings – created using a flame throwers as well as sculptures, planetary-reliefs, photographs and pure-colour monochrome paintings.
