Umbrellas -original Christo modern art lithograph & signed limited-edition book

1991

About the Item

"Umbrellas" is a 1991 originally signed, limited-edition lithograph by world-famous artist Christo and Jeanne-Claude, depicting the monumental The Umbrellas Japan - USA, 1984-91 project, featuring 1,340 blue umbrellas in Ibaraki, Japan, and 1,760 yellow umbrellas in California, USA. The here featured lithograph is signed by both Christo & Jeanne-Claude and comes with the limited-edition two-volume book of the project which is numbered and signed by the artists. Framed in a minimalist silver frame to museum standard. Christo (1935 - 2020) was a Bulgarian born, American artist who became famous together with his artistic partner and wife Jeanne-Claude (1935 - 2009) through their large-scale, site-specific environmental installations, often landmarks and landscape elements wrapped in fabric, as well as wrapped objects. They both said that their projects contained no deeper meaning than their immediate aesthetic impact; their purpose being simply for joy, beauty and new ways of seeing the familiar or exploring dimensions.
