Yves Klein is a French artist of paramount status in the Post-War European art scene. He is perhaps best known for his depiction of the infinite through the use of a hue now known as “Yves Klein Blue”. His works are rich with metaphysical undertones which describe the state of a reality that is “felt” rather than “represented”. In 1960, art critic Pierre Restany coined the term of Neo-Realism and identified Klein as the pioneer. Klein is perceived as the one of the first proponents of performance art, minimalism and pop art.
