The umbrella project was a two site-specific work of art by Bulgarian artist Christo Yavacheff and French artist Jeanne-Claude, known jointly as Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
At sunrise, on October 9, 1991, Christo and Jeanne-Claude's 1,880 workers began to open the 3,100 umbrellas in Ibaraki and California, in the presence of the artists at both sites. This Japan-USA temporary work of art reflected the similarities and differences in the ways of life and the use of the land in two inland valleys, one 12 miles (19 kilometers) long in Japan, and the other 18 miles (29 kilometers) long in the USA.
Vintage lithographic exhibition posters have become collectible works of art in their own right. They are highly collectible fine art prints as they are designed and created especially for the occasion. 20th century Artists were very aware that these creations had to reach the widest audiences and so spent a lot of their energy and time on their design and quality.
Please note that the photos do not do the Artwork justice, as it much nicer in real life! Please do not hesitate to mail me for more photos or descriptions as required. Also note that these Prints are Vintage and so they are not brand new. By their nature there may be signs of handling or in some cases slight foxing.
