Yves Klein Blue

Yves Klein (1928-1962) lived almost as short a life as Mozart and Jesus and Keats, but he lived long enough to make "Yves Klein Blue" his own and to make sure it would still be universally recognized as such more than half a century after his death. The purple Nike at bottom was unfamiliar to me until I looked at the source for these images here.
