Though he is recognised as a giant of twentieth-century art, Paul Klee’s extensive artistic oeuvre resists easy classification. A tireless innovator, and talented Bauhaus teacher, the Swiss-born German painter borrowed from Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. Full of musicality and faux-naïve charm, this print collection boasts some of his most celebrated works.
Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a German painter renowned for his unique expressive style incorporating an abstract language of pictorial symbols and signs. Arrows, letters, musical notation and ancient hieroglyphs frequently appear in his enigmatic paintings. A fundamental avant-gardist, Klee was a peer of Kandinsky and teacher at the Bauhaus. His individual approach resists categorisation, although there are influences of Expressionism, Cubism and Futurism. Also a musician, Klee believed in the link between music and painting which manifests in the visual rhythm of his work. Our collection of Klee prints includes his best loved works.
