It was created as an invitation to the exhibition “Le Plein” on the 25th of October, 1960 at the Iris Clert Gallery, Paris.
It was published by Galerie Iris Clert, Paris in 1960 in a limited edition of 1,500 hand signed and numbered works.
Another example of this invitation can be found in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA).
Note: The Galerie Iris Clert held two pioneering exhibitions. The first was Klein's, le Vide which opened on April 28, 1958. For this occasion Klein completely emptied the gallery except for a single bare display case, painted it a single shade of glossy white, and called it art.
Klein said: “My paintings are now invisible and I would like to show them in a clear and positive manner, in my next Parisian exhibition at Iris Clert’s”
In October 1960, Arman a close friend of Klein’s since childhood, exhibited in the Iris Clert Gallery. Arman’s exhibition was called Le Plein (The Full-Up). Le Plein was a direct contradiction of Klein’s Void: Arman filled the small gallery to the brim with. So much garbage, in fact, that the exhibition could only be viewed from the storefront window. Invitations to the exhibition were sent in small sardine cans, with the words "Arman – Le Plein – Iris Clert" printed simply on the pull-away top. Klein himself was supportive of his friend’s reversal, declaring "After my own emptiness comes Arman’s fullness. The universal memory of art was lacking his conclusive mummification of quantification."
