Monochrome und Feuer
Krefeld: Museum Haus Lange 1961 - First Edition. Quarto. Loose leaves in a printed portfolio. Unstated edition of 1000 copies. One of the most desirable catalogues of the 20th century, published in conjunction with Klein's exhibition at Museum Haus Lange, Krefeld, January 14 - February 26, 1961, and including three original chromatic plates, each 12 1/2 X 9 3/16 inches, one in International Klein Blue, one in lucid pink, and one in gold. The gold print has been manipulated by Klein with around 15 small (some very tiny) applications of gold leaf. Of the edition of 1000, about 100 are thought to have this element of personal intervention; no two are alike. With nine additional pages of text, 24 illustrations. A very good to near fine example: the blue print has two minuscule scratches at the left edge, the pink print has a tiny crease at the bottom left edge, else fine, and the gold print has tiny creases at the edges, and is gently bowed due to its weight; text contents near fine; portfolio has an inelegant sticker removal visible on the inside of the front cover, else very good. [Attributes: First Edition]
