Christo and Jeanne-Claude installed ‘The Gates,’ which included 7,503 fabric-paneled structures, throughout New York City’s Central Park in 2015. Lining the walkways of the park, the gates were meant to symbolize the Japanese torii gates at the Shinto shines. This print reproduces the artist’s hand-drawn designs and notes for the ambitious and memorable project.

Christo (American, Bulgarian-born Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, b.1935) and Jeanne-Claude (American, French-born Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon, 1935 –2009) were a couple most known for creating conceptually and visually impressive works that covered familiar locations and monuments in swaths of fabric. Sometimes seen as controversial due to their scale and the monuments chosen, their environmental artworks examine and create new ways of viewing familiar landscapes. Their most famed works include, “Wrapped Reichstag”, Berlin (1971-95), “The Umbrellas”, Japan - USA (1984-91) and “Surrounded Islands”, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida (1980-83).
