"It took Michelangelo three years, from 1513 to 1515 to create this sculpture, usually known as The Dying Slave, for the tombstone of Pope Jules II. This tragic and grandiose figure could not fail to appeal to Yves Klein. It was to be the artist’s final creation that appropriated museum and antique pieces."

"Michelangelo impiegò tre anni, dal 1513 al 1515, per creare questa scultura, comunemente nota come
Lo schiavo morente, per la lapide di papa Giulio II. Questa figura tragica e grandiosa non poteva non piacere a Yves Klein. Doveva essere l'ultima creazione dell'artista che si appropriava delle opere di antiquariato e musei."
