Signed offset. Work in perfect condition. TOP one of the first projects between Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
For one of their first works together, Christo and Jeanne-Claude blocked one of the narrowest streets in Paris with a wall of 89 found metal oil barrels in protest at the newly built Berlin Wall. Europe was unstable and tensions were running high in the city, with the violence of the Algerian War of Independence and the 1961 massacre in Paris, where police had attacked and murdered protesters. It was called The Iron Curtain and temporarily transformed the street into a dead end. The illegal art barricade stood for eight hours and blocked traffic. The artists had been refused permission for the project and continued until police demanded that they remove it.
