With this collaboration Caran d'Ache pays tribute to one of the most amazing artists of his time - Yves Klein. The collector sharpening machine is dressed with the legendary and infinite ultramarine blue. Print of the artist is engraved on the sharpening machine. This extremely saturated shade is fascinating to Klein as it is to Caran d'Ache for its uniqueness and matte, luminous radiance.
During the post-war period, Yves Klein was part of the French art movement Nouveau Realism, and is known for his iconic blue coloured paintings. Interestingly, the deep blue colour was inspired by the sky, and he officially named it as International Klein Blue (IKB).
For pastels and round and hexagonal pencils from Ø 4 to 10 mm with adjustable tip shape.
