Paris: Rive Droite, 1960.
Folio. Pamphlet. Prints "Monochromie et Vitalisme" by Pierre Restany, an important manifesto by one of the founders of the Nouveau Realisme movement. Also prints an essay by Werner Ruhnau and includes a list of works in the show. Laid in is a small (12.5" x 9.5") color poster on slick stock of "Bas-Relief," a lovely 1960 work done in Klein's IKB color. Some toning to covers, faint partial ring stain to edge, modest toning and light soiling to back of print (that presents very nicely from the front), very good overall. A desirable catalog, with a small poster, for a very important show the same year that Restany and Klein founded the Nouveau Realisme movement. Rare. (French text.).
