FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Christo gets his final wish as Paris’s Arc de Triomphe is wrapped • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

It was the dream of the late artist couple, Bulgarian-born #Christo and his French wife Jeanne-Claude. As they gazed out of their window in the early 1960s, they imagined wrapping #Paris’s Arc de Triomphe monument in fabric. They laid out detailed drawings and instructions on how to transform the landmark structure and today, their vision has been posthumously realised. We take a closer look.
