factoids
A large retrospective was held at Krefeld, Germany, January 1961, followed by an unsuccessful opening at Leo Castelli's Gallery, New York, in which Klein failed to sell a single painting. He stayed with Rotraut at the Chelsea Hotel for the duration of the exhibition; and, while there, he wrote the "Chelsea Hotel Manifesto", a proclamation of the "multiplicity of new possibilities." In part, the manifesto declared:At present, I am particularly excited by "bad taste." I have the deep feeling that there exists in the very essence of bad taste a power capable of creating those things situated far beyond what is traditionally termed "The Work of Art." I wish to play with human feeling, with its "morbidity" in a cold and ferocious manner. Only very recently I have become a sort of gravedigger of art (oddly enough, I am using the very terms of my enemies). Some of my latest works have been coffins and tombs. During the same time I succeeded in painting with fire, using particularly powerful and searing gas flames, some of them measuring three to four meters high. I use these to bathe the surface of the painting in such a way that it registered the spontaneous trace of fire.WEB, Yves Klein Archives, Chelsea Hotel Manifesto,weblink 1961, April 26, 2013, dead,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20130115221051weblink">weblink 15 January 2013, dmy-all, He moved on to exhibit at the Dwan Gallery, Los Angeles, and traveled extensively in the Western U.S., visiting Death Valley in the Mojave Desert.

Legacy

Unaware of the importance of the Nouveau Réalisme movement until the 1990s, New York critics of Klein's time tried to classify him as neo-Dada{{citation needed|date=August 2012}}, and other critics, such as Thomas McEvilley in an essay submitted to Artforum in 1982, classified Klein as an early, though enigmatic, postmodernist.McEvilley, T. "Yves Klein: Messenger of the Age of Space." Artforum 20, no. 5. January 1982. pp. 38–51.A sort of parody of Klein's Anthropometry performance is featured in the film Wise Guys (original title: Les Godelureaux) directed by Claude Chabrol released in 1961.The Yves Klein archive is housed in Phoenix, Arizona, where his widow Rotraut Klein-Moquay has a home."Painting the Blues; As a major new exhibition highlights the brief, colourful career of artist Yves Klein, his widow Rotraut talks exclusively to Laurence Marks" (29 Jan 1995) The Guardian p. 2
