French artist Yves Klein used female models as “living paintbrushes” to make his performative Anthropometry paintings, which were often produced as elaborate performances in front of an audience. Klein would direct the women, covered in blue paint, a color he patented as International Klein Blue, to make imprints of their bodies on large sheets of paper. A screenprint of one of his Anthropometries, this work clearly presents the a female body outlined in various hues of blue.
