More information about this artwork

This figurative sculpture by Yves Klein shows the death of a slave, and touches on themes that Klein was concerned with, including death and freedom. Painted in ‘International Klein Blue’, the artist’s distinctive bright shade of blue, this piece’s combination of such a bold color on a human figure makes it particularly eye-catching.
