Paul Klee Art

German, 1879-1940

Paul Klee was a Swiss-born German artist. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included Expressionism, Cubism and Surrealism.

Klee was a natural draftsman who experimented with and eventually deeply explored color theory, writing about it extensively; his lectures Writings on Form and Design Theory (Schriften zur Form und Gestaltungslehre) — which were published in English as the Paul Klee Notebooks — are held to be as important for modern art as Leonardo da Vinci's A Treatise on Painting was for the Renaissance.

Klee and his colleague, Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, both taught at the Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture in Germany. His works reflect his dry humor and his sometimes childlike perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, and his musicality.
