L’ours Pompon – Edition Yves Klein
Yves Klein tirelessly sought the essence of art and wanted to expose its immateriality. In sculpture, he found a true space of freedom where monochrome permeates three-dimensional space. In 1962, he covered universally admired masterpieces with his IKB blue: the Venus of Alexandria, the Victory of Samothrace or Michelangelo’s Dying Slave. They then become incarnate objects, sensitive presences.
Exactly one century after its revelation at the Salon d’Automne, François Pompon‘s White Bear is adorned with this famous blue, to the delight of our eyes. One captured the essence of form, the other that of colour and, beyond that, the essence of art. The art of reality, of freedom, of life.
Come to the gallery to discover this exceptional limited edition sculpture, created in collaboration with the Succession Yves Klein and the Association François Pompon.
