The Umbrellas | A Lasting Legacy of Christo’s Land Art

19 - 26 MARCH 2021 | LONDON

Christo and Jeanne Claude were renowned for their iconic, large-scale ephemeral projects. In this latest Sotheby’s video, specialist Michael Bouhanna tells us about one of their pioneering installations, over 3000 umbrellas located in both Japan and Los Angeles which opened in perfect synchronisation. The Umbrellas (Joint Project for Japan and USA), is an architectural painting of this epic project and a lasting legacy of one of Christo’s most iconic installations, offered in Sotheby’s upcoming Contemporary Art Day Sale (19 – 26 March).
