Artist photo postcard for “The Pont Neuf Wrapped II” from 1975.
Size: 16,2 x 11,4 cm.
The photo has been hand-signed by Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Christo (Bulgarian: Христо Владимиров Явашев) was born in Gabrovo, Bulgaria.
Christo studied art at the Sofia Academy from 1953 to 1956 and went to Prague, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic), until 1957, when he left for the West by bribing a railway official and stowing away with several other individuals on board a train transporting medicine and medical supplies to Austria.
Christo and Jeanne-Claude described the myriad elements that brought the projects to fruition as integral to the artwork itself, and said their projects contained no deeper meaning than their immediate aesthetic impact; their purpose being simply for joy, beauty, and new ways of seeing the familiar.
