by Yves Klein
Yves Klein redefined the notion of painting and nude with his innvotive technique of 'living brushes'. He would paint the body of female models in blue paint, and pressed them or dragged them across the paper and canvas to come up with his paintings. In the painting above, repeated blurred images of a female nude seem to emerge from the canvas. The naked body is the 'brush' as well as the object of this great piece of art.
