Friday is Top day! Every other Friday, Artprice publishes a theme-based auction ranking. This week we look at the top ten of Nouveau Réalisme, which is dominated by just one name: Yves Klein.

Kinetic art goes back a long way. Its origins – from a multitude of groups and movements – go back to the 1910s and 1920s, an era highly impregnated by the cult of progress and the myth of the machine. Europe, the United States and Latin America were the main cradles for the development of an abstract language that eschewed static art and sought to emulate or trigger movement, whether real or virtual.

After the sale of three Niki de Saint-Phalle’s giant Nanas in Germany in December 2008 for €750,000, the Paris sale last month of her Le Banc produced another excellent result. The French-American artist – whose works are collected all over the world – is generating good sales performances in spite of the crisis.

During their lifetimes, several New Realists gained considerable recognition in the United States. Their participation in the artistic maelstrom of New York during the 1960-80s partly explains their success at American and British auctions. Pierre Restany, a travelling art critic and polyglot involved in the emergence of the movement, worked towards their promotion in the USA; artist Niki de Saint Phalle, a French-Americain, frequently crossed the Atlantic; Jean Tinguely gained notoriety with his Homage to New-York, a cacaphonic happening at the MOMA in 1960 whose apotheosis was its intended self-destruction. The following year, Arman exposed for the first time in New-York, while Leo Castelli, a dealer of Warhol, Lichtenstein and Rauschenberg, opened his gallery to Yves Klein.
