IM WEISSEN RAUM: LUCIO FONTANA, YVES KLEIN (In the White Space: Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein). Museum Haus Esters and Museum Haus Lange, Krefeld, 1994. Organized and published by Krefelder Kunstmuseen. 152 pp. with 89 ills. (55 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 3926530731 In German.
Documenting an exhibition designed to illuminate affinities between the experimental works produced during the 1950s and early 60s by two prominent figures in postwar avant-garde art, this catalogue presents 24 monochromatic paintings and sculptural objects executed by French artist Klein (1928-1962) from 1956 to 1962 along with 28 works dating from 1949 to 1964 by Italian artist Fontana (1899-1968), including numerous examples of his famous perforated canvases. Excellent reproductions of the featured pieces are accompanied by a lengthy examination of the innovative techniques and concepts of space explored by the artists and a discussion of an installation created for the Museum Haus Lange by Klein in 1961 that consists of an empty chamber defined by textured white walls.
