He is known above all for his use of single colors, the rich shade of ultramarine that he made his own: International Klein Blue. But the success of his sadly short-lived career lay in attacking many of the ideas that underpinned the abstract painting that had been dominant in France since the end of the Second World War. For some critics, he is a descendant of Marcel Duchamp, a prankster who lampooned settled understandings of painting and opened art up to new media. Others consider him as a descendant of earlier avant-garde artists such as Kazimir Malevich and Aleksander Rodchenko, who were also attracted to the monochrome.

Yves Klein was born on April 28 in Nice, on rue Verdi, in the home of his maternal grandparents. His father, Fred Klein, Dutch of Indonesian extraction, was a figurative painter. His mother, née Marie Raymond from an Alpes-Maritimes family, was a well-known abstract painter.

Yves Klein is probably best known for his signature shade of blue and for the paintings he created using naked models as paintbrushes, but he also made a foray into the world of furniture design. The result was his Table Blue, still in production (and available to the public for the modest sum of $22,500).

The table is essentially a plexiglass box, supported by metal legs and filled with pigment in Yves’ international blue. It also comes in pink (the Table Rose) and Gold (the Table Or, filled with 3,000 sheets of gold leaf). Yves tables are produced today by Artware, and you can have one in your home with a few clicks if you possess the financial resources.
