Lot Details

Each work in this portfolio is hand-signed by the artist CHRISTO.

This very rare set of 11 offset lithographs mounted on heavy paper, from an unknown edition size, includes images of some of the artists' most famous realized large-scale projects, including "Valley Curtain," "The Umbrellas," "Running Fence," and "Surrounded Islands," as well as the recently realized "The Gates" and the soon-to-be realized "The Mastaba" in Abu Dhabi. The prints show the dramatic designs for the projects as well as aspects of the physical schematics for these works, such as dimensions and maps. Each print is accompanied by a press release. The set comes in a cloth-covered portfolio box, which has some minor wear due to handling.

The projects documented in this set include:
"The Mastaba" (since 1977)
"The Gates" (1979-2005)
"Wrapped Reichstag" (1971-95)
"The Umbrellas" (1984-91)
"The Pont Neuf Wrapped" (1975-85)
"Surrounded Islands" (1980-83)
