Blue Monochrome
Yves Klein (French, 1928-1962) 1961.  "Monochrome abstraction—the use of one color over an entire canvas—has been a strategy adopted by many painters wishing to challenge expectations of what an image can and should represent. Klein worked with a chemist to develop his own particular brand of blue, called International Klein Blue, and adopted this hue as a means of evoking the immateriality and boundlessness of his own particular utopian vision of the world."
