French artist Yves Klein was born on this day in 1928. Klein was a pioneer in several art movements, including pop art and performance art. He is perhaps most well known for creating International Klein Blue, a shade of vibrant blue, which is closely matched in today’s Artwork of the Day by Emerson Woelffer.
