Jean Baguenault de Viéville: Yves Klein’s Doppelganger -- The Real Man Known As Klein's Fictitious Painter "Haguenault" is an installation that doubles as an art exhibition organized by art historian Kellie Ines Doge Reno.

Reno's exhibition, Jean Baguenault de Viéville: Yves Klein’s Doppelganger -- The Real Man Known As Klein's Fictitious Painter "Haguenault", presents 13 monochromatic paintings of past French Colonial capitals dating from 1926-1953. Also on display is a traveling case used by Baguenault (and built by Yves Klein) and a letter outlining their correspondence.

Arizona Fine Art Publishers and Phoenix Fine Art Restorers produced the catalogue, Baguenault’s La serié Zone, to accompany this exhibition.

This installation was included in Fabiola Iza's Duplicitous Storytellers at UNAM's Casa del Lago in Mexico City (Feb 9 2012 -- April 8 2012).
