French artist Yves Klein (1928 – 1962) created complex, puzzling artworks often using only one color. Painting monochromes unrestricted by line or form, he showcased the purity and absoluteness of color. When an exhibition of his monochromes was misinterpreted, the artist resolved to paint all future works only in blue, going so far as to patent his own shade, International Klein Blue. In 2000, Klein’s painting “RE I” sold for an astounding $6,716,000 at Christie’s.
