A U.S. Moment for Yves Klein
Yves Klein, the radical French artist who died in 1962 when he was only 34, has been something of an enigma to Americans. Individual works have occasionally turned up in museum shows in this country, and Upper East Side galleries like Gagosian, Michael Werner and L&M Arts have displayed his work. In contrast to Europe, where several institutions have held shows of his art, such exhibitions have been rare here.
Now the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis are about to give Klein his first solo museum moment in the United States since a traveling exhibition in 1982 visited the Guggenheim, the Rice Museum in Houston and other sites.
