In 2005, Christo and his wife, the French-American artist Jeanne-Claude, animated 23 miles of wintry Central Park pathways with wind-blown hangings of saffron-colored fabric. The top drawing plots the route of The Gates, while the bottom one envisions their installation against the New York City skyline.
