La Venus d'Alexandrie (Venus Bleu)

There is a fabulous art gallery in Aspen, CO called Galerie Maximillian.  They have some beautiful pieces and if you are ever lucky enough to be in the area (as I was in January), I can recommend it!

My absolute favourite piece – I kept going back to it – was Yves Klein‘s ‘La Venus d’Alexandrie’.  it was A M A Z I N G!  (Sigh)

Klein was passionate about blue.  He even gave his extreme tone of blue a patented trademark – International Klein Blue (IKB).

Do you have a piece of art that you covet?
