Paul Klee’s imaginative works provide a link between the world of reason and the irrational secrets of human existence, charming the viewer with their inventiveness, delight in experimentation, subtle humor, and brilliant color schemes. The Bauhaus painter famously contrasted the technical and rational tendencies of the 1920s with playfulness, intuition, and artistic genius.
This book presents the prestigious Munich collection of Klee’s works in conjunction with more than one hundred loaned by international institutions, providing a new angle on the abstract works Klee painted during his Bauhaus period. Subdivided according to symbols of transcendental longing like ladders, mountains, and stairs, this collection reveals Klee as an original “thinking artist” who confronted the challenges of modernity by brilliantly transforming artistic technique into works of myth and mystery. This opulent volume celebrates one of the most important and productive artists of the twentieth century, whose work is as topical today as it ever was.
