Lot description
This work is hand-signed in pencil by the artist CHRISTO.

This print from 1989 depicts an unrealized project, which proposed a 15-foot high white curtain that would run along the SS 74 roadway through the Tuscan region of Maremma. The map shows the curtain starting just outside the town of Manciano and ending at the Mediterranean Sea. The winding route and ivory fabric is reminiscent of "Running Fence," which was installed in Sonoma and Marin Counties in California in 1976.
