Though born on the same day in 1935, artists Christo Vladimirov Javacheff (1935–2020) and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon (1935–2009) did not cross paths until many years later in Paris. The seemingly fated couple married quickly and embarked on a decades-long artistic collaboration until Jeanne-Claude’s death, engaging creatively with the environment around them through site-specific installations that often enveloped buildings and entire landscapes with fabric and nylon. In order to fund their ambitious projects, Christo and Jeanne-Claude began making more salable items, such as prints, collages, and objects, early on in their career. This volume is a completely revised and expanded catalog raisonné of pieces that may have been made on a smaller scale but with no less creative fervor. This publication is a testament to a creative collaboration that never allowed the convention to limit the scope of its activity.
