Christo's plans were elaborate and detailed, requiring numerous sketches, plans and mapping, which necessitated significant funding and even city permits and permissions. Due to the ambitious nature of these artistic endeavors, Christo's initial plans were often thwarted, and the only remaining trace of his grandiose ideas are his beautifully and delicately rendered drawing collages, such as the present work, Wrapped Staircase for Yvon Lambert Gallery (Project for 28 Rue de Paradis, Paris).
