This iconic table is from the edition begun in 1963 under the supervision of Yves Klein’s widow, Rotraut Klein-Moquay, based on two models he designed in 1961. Klein died unexpectedly in 1962 and other than these two original models owned by his estate there are no vintage tables. From 1963 to the present, the Yves Klein Archives has overseen the production of this table and there has only ever been the one continuous edition. Each table has a signed and numbered placard of authenticity issued by the estate affixed to the underside.

The table is available in the three materials most common to Klein’s work: International Klein Blue (IKB®) pigment, rose pigment, and gold leaf. The tables are a controlled edition, which means that the estate produces a limited number each year. Although the exact number produced of each variation is not made public, in the early years few, if any, tables were made.

The present lot has been authenticated by the Yves Klein Archives in Paris.
