Inspired By: Yves Klein’s Blue Revolution

Some artists are known for their characteristic styles or techniques, but French artist Yves Klein is known for something even more specific: a single shade of Ultramarine blue. Mixed and officially registered as “Klein Blue” in the 1960s, Klein exclusively used this particular shade of blue for his famous monochromatic paintings in The Blue Epoch series. Inspired by Klein’s work, we’ve paired up some our favorite Klein Blue paintings with blue-hued selects from the new Classic Specs collection.
