Tate Liverpool and Céline honour Yves Klein

 

Yves Klein is being celebrated at Tate Liverpool with a fantastic retrospective running until March 2017, bringing together major paintings, photographs, installations and archival material never before seen in the UK alongside his Anthropometry paintings and Fire Paintings. This is also the UK’s first solo museum show in 20 years of the inventor of the  International Klein Blue (IKB) colour.

Fashion brand Céline seems to be following Tate’s inspiration as the recent Paris Spring/Summer 2017 collection featured a replication of one of Klein’s Anthropometries. It looks like Phoebe Philo’s also a fan of the conceptual pioneering artist.
