The name Christo has largely been associated with installation works created on a monumental scale. During the 1960s–early 1970s Christo gained popularity for his wrapped buildings and statues in which he draped fabric over the structure, securing the wrappings with thousands of feet of string. His early work, like this box from 1966, foreshadows his wrapping fixation but on a much smaller scale.

ULAN note: Bulgarian-born, but American citizen from 1973. Known for his 'empaquetage' (packaging) in which objects or buildings are wrapped. His ambitious projects include wrapping the Pont Neuf in Paris and the Reichstag in Berlin. Also known for his landscape projects such as the "Running Fence" in California. Creates large-scale installation pieces with his wife, Jeanne-Claude.
