I suppose Klein is most known for the famous Harry Shunk 1960 photomontage where Klein appears to be leaping off a bldg: "Man in Space! The Painter of Space Throws Himself into the Void!", for creating a particular blue, & for using nude models w/ paint on them as 'human brushes' for paintings of their body's contact points w/ the canvas. It's all interesting enuf for someone who didn't make it past 34 yrs old & this bk has nice color illustrations that get across the subtleties.
