More information about this artwork

Yves Klein’s 1962 Venus Blue (Bleue) features Klein’s signature International Klein Blue (IKB) on a plaster cast of the celebrated Venus de Milo sculpture. Klein redefines monochrome by recreating the exquisite human form at its finest in a three-dimensional field in the dreamy IKB. This appropriation of the famous Greek sculpture in a painted IKB, gives the dated masterpiece a commercial appeal, and acts as a precursor to Pop art.
