    In 1971, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the renowned husband-and-wife artist duo, presented a collection titled "(Some) Not Realized Projects." This portfolio wasn't a showcase of completed works, but rather a glimpse into their creative vision. It comprised five separate prints, each depicting an unrealized project – a grand artistic intervention on a specific landmark that never came to fruition.

    These prints served as a unique document of the artistic process. They offered viewers a window into the minds of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, showcasing their initial ideas and the meticulous planning that went into their large-scale, often controversial, public installations. While the projects themselves remained unrealized, the portfolio provided a fascinating record of their artistic ambition and the lengths they were willing to go to transform iconic structures and landscapes.

    (Some) Not Realized Projects is a portfolio of five prints by Christo & Jeanne-Claude that was published in 1971 by Landmark Press in Chicago, IL.  This complete portfolio consists of 4 never framed images and one work that was previously framed.  It is accompanied in the original portfolio case with title page.  
    These works are extremely rare to come by and include the collage print of the Whitney museum in NYC (which alone sold for $10,000 USD in 2020).


    "The work of art is a scream of freedom. It doesn't belong to anybody. It belongs to everybody and to nobody."

     

    Christo & Jeanne-Claude

    Christo and Jeanne-Claude, forever linked as a collaborative artistic duo, were born in 1935 (Christo in Bulgaria, Jeanne-Claude in Morocco) and left their mark on the world with large-scale, temporary installations. Their artistic partnership blossomed after meeting in Paris in 1958.
