Lot Details

Each work is hand-signed by the artist CHRISTO.

These prints display the 1984-91 project "The Umbrellas," in which Christo and Jeanne-Claude installed 3,100 massive umbrellas in Japan and California simultaneously. Each installation was tailored to the natural landscape, with the blue umbrellas set close together along rice fields in Japan, and the yellow umbrellas spreading out along the hills of Northern California. The installation, which stood for 18 days, was open to the public in both locations.
