Yves Propositions Monochromes - Yves Klein

KLEIN (Yves). Yves Propositions Monochromes. Dusseldorf. Galerie Schmela. 1957.
Small landscape 8vo., 10.3x18.2 cm. (20.6x29.3 cm. unfolded),  1l., cream white paper, fodled in four, printed in blue, German and French texts, recto/verso respectively, Pierre Restany’s contribution entitled 'La minute de vérité'. Duesseldorf, Galerie Schmela, May 31, 1957. 
A scarce early ephemeron printed in IKB. Crisp copy. Very rare in both commerce and institutions with no copies on OCLC or in Dadabase.  
The catalogue for Schmela's inaugural show and the first time that Klein had exhibited the monochromes in Germany, which was also his first exhibition at Iris Clert in the same year.  There was a spirited discussion for the exhibition in which Alfred Schmela defended the showing of, then, controversial artists like Klein.
