About

"We are probably the only artists in the world who have a 2,000-page book on a work of art that doesn't exist," said Christo (b. 1935) of collaborating with his late partner Jeanne-Claude. A remarkable thing about the world-famous duo is that many of their fantastical ideas have become realities. Their monumental projects, such as The Gates in Central Park and Wrapped Reichstag, forever changed the world's view of iconic locales. This success can be attributed, in large part, to that laborious documentation. "These projects reveal their identity through this whole process," Christo said. "When I'm starting, I only have the slightest idea of how the work of art will exist." Christo and Jeanne-Claude's early-career proposal to wrap Rome's oldest bridge, Ponte Sant'Angelo is captured in this exquisite mixed-media print. The work is a screenprint with fabric, twine, felt pen and graphite. With every large scale installation piece Christo and Jeanne-Claude create, they release a lithograph print to commemorate the event. The lithographs read as blue prints for the larger, wrapped objects or environmental installations. They print the object on museum board then “wrap” the printed object in the same material that they used on the installation piece. Christo Ponte Sant'Angelo, Wrapped, Project for Rome, 2011, (26/90) mixed-media print Photograph mounted on rag paper, with collotype, silkscreen and collage on card, signed in pencil and numbered XXVI/XC (aside from the edition of 160 in Arabic numerals plus 50 artist's proofs), published by Geur und Breckner, Düsseldorf, produced by Ostfildern, Stuttgart and Schullmann Art, Munich, the full sheet, framed in plexiglass box.
