In this substantial volume, the works of the infamous mid-century French visionary artist, Yves Klein--famed for having been photographed jumping off a wall, "into the void," with his arms outstretched as he moved rapidly towards the pavement, as well as for having claimed and patented his very own shade of the color blue--are presented alongside paintings by the artist whose work influenced him most profoundly: his mother, the bold abstract painter Marie Raymond (1908-1972). Presented here for the first time together, the works of mother and son testify to the intensity of the pair's filial relationship, as well as to the depth of their artistic exchange. Also features a selection of paintings by Klein's father, the Abstract Figurative painter Fred Klein, as well as documentary photographs from the 1920s through the 70s.
