Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Most Extraordinary Land Art

Conceptual twosome Christo and Jeanne-Claude have long been synonymous with large-scale enigmatic works of environmental art. For more than 48 years the duo worked together tirelessly to reimagine natural landscapes, from Australian harbours and Floridian archipelagos to Berliner Reichstag and Rocky Mountain valleys, with their vast labyrinthine swathes of coloured cloth. Even now, seven years after Jeanne-Claude's sad passing at the age of 74, Christo continues their legacy; for the past two weeks visitors to Italy's Lake Iseo have been enchanted by The Floating Piers, for which 100,000 square metres of shimmering yellow fabric float on the open water, forming a footbridge to the island of San Paolo.
