Christo and Jeanne-Claude : For their sheer scale and breathtaking audacity, their works have made them among the most celebrated and controversial artists in the world. For more than forty years, the works by Christo and Jeanne-Claude have reconceived the art of the possible, turned natural and human monuments - streets, bridges, hills, trees, buildings, parks, and islands - into sculptures and paintings, and created dazzling new landscapes and startling new vistas. Christo and Jeanne-Claude have been the frequent subjects of films, videos, catalogues, cartoons, monographs, exhibitions, and editorials. Until this biography by Burt Chernow, however, written with the full cooperation of the artists, nothing has connected the intimate details of their lives and the spectacular dimensions of their projects.
