CHRISTO "PACKAGE ON CAROZZA" LITHO COLLAGE, 1984
Christo and Jeanne-Claude are two of the most ambitious and audacious artists of the 20th century.
Amazingly they were both born on June 13, 1935. Jeanne-Claude passed away in late 2009.
While Christo continues to work today, their projects, both realized and proposed, are stunning hybrid examples of land art, installation and public sculpture.
Some of their most astounding works include wrapping the Pont-Neuf bridge in Pairs and the Reichstag in Berlin.
In 2005 they unveiled "The Gates" in New York City's Central Park, which had been in development since 1979!
An interesting element of their practice is the temporary nature of their work. Sites, or objects, are returned to their original state and the materials used in their signature wrapping style and recycled.
The couple for most of their career has existed outside of the traditional gallery system and have strived to be as independent and self-financed as possible.
In order to raise funds for ambitious large-scale projects, the couple has produced multiples or sold preparatory drawings.
This is a fantastic example of Christo and Jean-Claude's aesthetic and practice.
