France | Heirs of late artist Christo realize his dream of wrapping Arc de Triomphe

Artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude had dreamed of wrapping France's Arc de Triomphe in fabric early in their careers. But it took 60 years for that vision to be realized, in a posthumous installation currently being unfurled on the famous memorial in Paris.


Vladimir Yavachev, Christo's nephew, began working with the artists when he was still a teenager. He joined Christo on his final project, L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped in 2017.
