Obscure catalogue. "While researching a catalogue essay on Yves Klein and the Blue Stamp he affixed to a postcard announcing the 1957 exhibition of his monochrome blue paintings, "Yves Klein: Propositions Monochromes", at the Iris Clert Gallery in Paris, I (can't recall where this quote came from, nor who the "I" is) interviewed Pierre Restany, the theoretician of the Nouveau Realists group, and Sidrah Stich, curator of a recent European traveling exhibition on Klein. But it was not until a meeting with Klein's childhood friend Arman, that I was able to dispel a veil of speculation that surrounds this famed stamp of blue. When asked if he knew how the stamps were perforated, Arman answered that he was there at the conception of the idea. Dealer Iris Clert, well connected in political circles, arranged for the stamps to be printed and perforated at the official French postage stamp printing office.". N° de réf. du libraire 156
