”Yves Klein (1928-1962) was one of the front figures within the art movement, Nouveau realism. Today he is most famous for his ’Klein blue’ pieces and as a pioneer of the performance art. Klein’s work was shown at the Swedish-French Art Gallery in Stockholm already in 1963, while Moderna Museet have several of his works in their collection. Bukowskis have previously sold Klein’s work with great success and are now looking for further works to sell to both our Swedish and international customers in the upcoming autumn auction” - Karin Aringer, specialist in Contemporary Art and Photography.
