This set of six prints features Christo and Jeanne-Claude's "Wrapped Reichstag" (1971-1995). This project, in which they wrapped the German parliamentary building in more than 300,000 square feet of polypropylene fabric and aluminum and over nine miles of rope, was approved only after the artists had personally visited each of the 662 members of Germany’s Parliament. These prints predate the installation of the project in Germany's capitol. Like many of Christo's collages, prints, and drawings, these posters' designs include sketched renderings, maps, and other preliminary details. Several of these works also include embossing printed over with silver foil to mimic the appearance of the shiny fabric that was used for the project.
