    About The Work

    This very rare, signed and uniquely inscribed gelatin silver print was a wedding gift from Christo to pioneering performance artist Letty Lou Eisenhauer (Roy Lichtenstein's former girlfriend) and David L. Kurzman. It has special significance as it is personally inscribed by Christo "For Letty Eisenhauer and David Kurzman." The work depicts Christo's 1968 Project for Documenta Kassel, the "largest ever inflated structure without a skeleton. After three unsuccessful attempts, it was erected on August 3, 1968, with the assistance of five cranes, two of which were 230 feet (70 meters) high and weighed 200 tons each."
