Piero Manzoni, an enfant terrible of Italian art in the 1950s and early 1960s, is best known for Artist's Shit (Artist's Shit) (1961), 90 sealed cans whose price is in gold, one of many works that question the nature of the art object. Other stunts included balloons filled with "artist's breath" and "Living Sculptures", human subjects signed by Manzoni. His "Achromes" paintings (from 1957 onwards), canvases covered with materials such as plaster, kaolin, fabric and bread that undergo sagging, folds and other temporal changes, suggest the influence of Yves Klein and Robert Rauschenberg.
