Additional Details: This rare exhibition poster, titled "Blue Umbrellas," commemorates the remarkable installation created by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in October 1991. The project featured 960 yellow umbrellas in a Californian valley north of Los Angeles and 920 blue umbrellas in a Japanese valley north of Tokyo. The installation aimed to highlight the similarities and differences between the two valleys and the two countries. In a stunning demonstration of environmental art, Christo and Jeanne-Claude's "The Umbrellas" project spanned two continents, with striking blue umbrellas set in Japan and yellow umbrellas in California. The project was a profound exploration of the landscapes and cultural contexts of the two locations. This poster captures the essence of the Japanese installation, where 920 blue umbrellas transformed the valley into a mesmerizing visual experience.
