YVES KLEIN (1928-1962)

Offset and letterpress on newsprint. 495x375 mm, 19½x14¾ inches. 1960.

This 4-page broadsheet was issued on Sunday, November 27th, 1960 and sold around Paris at newsstands. A work of "conceptual art," it was published in conjunction with the Festival d'Art d'Avant Garde. Written entirely by Klein, the faux newspaper, also known by its subtitle, "the newspaper of only one day," marked the first appearance of the artist's "The Leap into the Void" photograph.
