Jean-Michel’s L’Arc de Triomphe Wrapped, 2021 is a contemporary experimental color photograph of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris wrapped in fabric.

The art duo Christo and Jeanne-Claude dreamt of adding the wrapping of the French monument to their list of conceptual projects realized worldwide. With 16 days, Sep 18 - Oct 3, 2021, allotted for the project in the City of Light, the arch commissioned by Napoleon in nineteenth century Paris was transformed by the two modern visionaries: wrapped in silvery-blue fabric and red rope the arch represents a salute to the grandiose, beautiful, and perhaps the ephemeral nature of both.

French photographer JM documents the monument using a signature photo-xray style. The photograph is in an edition of 5, sized 13" x 19" and signed, printed by the artist on handmade Awagami Japanese paper. Available: 1/5.
