About

Package on a hunt is a beautiful original color offset on paper realized by Christo (Gabrovo, 1935). Signed by the artist in brown pencil on lower right margin. This fashionable original print representing the Christo's project for Gosler. In excellent conditions. Christo (Gabrovo, Bulgaria, 1935) Christo (born Hristo Vladimirov Yavachev) was born in Gabrovo, Bulgaria in 1935. He studied art at the Sofia Academy from 1953 to 1956 and eventually moved to Vienna in 1957 where he enrolled at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts but only for a semester. He in fact left Austria to move to Paris which however cost him his Bulgarian citizenship, making him a stateless person. During these years his life was characterized by social isolation and financial difficulties which he tried to solve by painting portraits. He met his wife Jeanne-Claude because he was commissioned to paint her mother’s portrait. He has collaborated with his wife Jeanne-Claude for over 40 years on enormous packaging projects (wrapping parks, buildings etc…) Since the early ‘60s the two begun collaborating on several projects and gained recognition. In 1964 they moved to New York where they settled. There Christo displayed his work in several galleries and earned the money necessary to finance his larger projects by executing and then selling preparatory drawings to collectors and dealers. Believing that people should have intense and memorable experiences of art outside the institution of the museum, Christo typically creates temporary wrappings on an extended scale. In his installations traditional aesthetic criteria such as line, shape, form, and colour are coupled with the immediacy of nature.
