Anthropométrie ANT 83.

Color screenprint on heavy white wove paper, 2001. 550x790 mm; 21 3/4x31 1/4 inches (sheet), full margins. Numbered 186/200 in pencil and signed by the artist's widow, Rotraut Klein-Moquay, in ink, verso. Published by Editions T.A.T. Arts, Paris. A very good impression with strong colors.

Based on one of Klein's (1928-1962) "Anthropometry" paintings from 1960, for which the artist used nude women as human paintbrushes, applying blue paint to their bodies and putting them in contact with canvas, paper, gallery walls and other materials.
