Christo was famous for wrapping objects up as artworks.
The objects were often huge, such as buildings or bridges (the Reichstag and the Pont Neuf).
The caption of the cartoon reads:
“I bought my husband a Christo as a birthday present once – and he unwrapped it.”
The cartoon is meant to be a joke at the expense of rich patrons of art who nevertheless know little about, or appreciate little about, art.
The cartoon shows the opening preview of an exhibition of Christo’s work.
