Brace yourself for the blues: Declaring that a “new world calls for a new man”, showman-artist Yves Klein made his name with his large monochrome canvases, International Klein Blue, and “living paintbrushes,” in which naked women, daubed in paint, made imprints of their bodies on large sheets of paper. In the mid-1950s, Yves Klein (1928–1962) declared that “a new world calls for a new man.” With his idiosyncratic style and huge charisma, this bold artist would go on to pursue a brief but bountiful career, producing more than 1,000 paintings over seven years in an oeuvre now considered a mainstay of postwar modernism.
