Paul Klee is one of the most influential and prolific artists of the 20th century, known for his sophisticated theories, meticulous paintings, and watercolors. He was influenced by the German expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter and a trip to Tunisia, and taught at the Bauhaus school. His works are characterized by their sophisticated thought, meticulous nuances of line, color, and tonality, and often combine the appearance of untutored naïveté with rigorous composition and intellectual significance. This book provides a selection of key Klee works to introduce his style and influence.

Paul Klee (1879-1940) is widely regarded as one of the most intellectually rigorous and prolific figures in 20th-century European art. Despite often working on a small scale, his works are celebrated for their sophisticated conceptual depth and exquisite attention to line, color, and tone.

Klee's artistic development was significantly influenced by his early association with the German expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter, particularly through his transformative 1914 trip to Tunisia, which revolutionized his approach to color. Following the war, he assumed a teaching position at the renowned Bauhaus school, where his lectures, like his evolving practice, emphasized the symbolic potential inherent in shade, line, and geometry.

Klee's artistic inspiration was drawn from a diverse range of sources, including Cubism, poetry, music, literature, language, and the simple yet profound beauty of children's art. Renowned for his iconic stick figures, he often combined the appearance of untutored naivety with rigorous composition and profound intellectual significance. This book offers a curated selection of key Klee works to introduce his unique style and profound influence. From sun-drenched landscapes to enigmatic wordplay, explore a world that is simultaneously simplistic, symbolic, and dazzlingly colorful.
