$350

About

An original offset-lithograph poster on smooth wove paper after French artist Yves Klein (1928-1962) titled "Le Printemps des Poètes (Portrait Relief d'Arman)", 2015. Edition size unknown. Printer unknown and published by Le Printemps des Poètes in Paris, France. This poster was distributed at bookstores across France to celebrate the 2015 annual event of "Le Printemps des Poètes" and features Yves Klein's 1962 sculpture edition "Portrait Reflief d'Arman". Reference: "Catalogue Raisonne - Editions Yves Klein" by Jean-Paul Ledeur - (PR 1), pg. 258-261. Photo Copyright Christie's Images/Bridgeman Images. Sheet size: 22.75" x 17". Image size: 21.75" x 17". In excellent condition. Though not that old, examples of this poster today are very difficult to find. "Le Printemps des Poètes" was launched by Jack Lang, former Minister of Culture (in a letter to Catherine Trautmann, January 19, 1998, where the event is still called "La France en poésie"). The first event took place in 1999; it was hosted by André Velter during its first three events. Emmanuel Hoog was the first responsible. Jean-Pierre Siméon is today its artistic director. It encourages as many people as possible to celebrate poetry, whatever its form of expression throughout the territory, like the Fête de la musique created in 1982. Since 2001, each edition has tried to highlight a particular subject on which it will then be possible to compose according to your inspiration. Each year, more than 12,000 events and other festivities are organized, mainly in France and Quebec, on the occasion of this week devoted to poetic art, which usually takes place in March, preceding by a few days the arrival of spring. In 2016, the event received the Goncourt prize for poetry for all of its action. Yves Klein (28 April 1928 - 6 June 1962) was a French artist considered an important figure in post-war European art. He is the leading member of the French artistic movement of Nouveau réalisme founded in 1960 by art critic Pierre Restany. Klein was a pioneer in the development of performance art, and is seen as an inspiration to, and as a forerunner of, Minimal art, as well as Pop art.
