YVES PROPOSITIONS MONOCHROMES. 1956. KLEIN’S FOURTH EVER SOLO SHOW AND ONLY THE SECOND PARIS SHOWING OF HIS MONOCHROMES + RESTANY’S FIRST EVER TEXT ON THE PAINTER

£1,750.00

Paris: Galerie Collete Allendy, 1956
19.5 x 9.5, 4pp. Announcement leaflet / card printed red and black on white letterpress on thick paper with the important early critical text by Pierre Restany – LA MINUTE DE VERITE (The Moment of Truth) – this is the ultra rare announcement leaflet for Klein’s first exhibition in the Allendy Gallery (before moving to Iris Clert) and the first extensive showing of his monochrome paintings in Paris (after an earlier show in 1955 of a smaller number of works).
This was Klein’s fourth ever solo show in a gallery. There is a circling of part of the text (the date and time of the exhibition) and some soft creases but else is in VG condition. An exceptionally rare document.
