Paul Klee: Construction of Mystery
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, subtle humour, and brilliant colour schemes. The Bauhaus painter (1879-1940) famously contrasted the technical and rational tendencies of the 1920s with playfulness, intuition, and artistic genius.
This book which accompanies an exhibition at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich provides a new angle on the abstract works Klee painted during his Bauhaus period. Covering the period from 1905 until 1940, this handsome hardback reveals Klee as an original “thinking artist” who confronted the challenges of modernity by brilliantly transforming artistic technique into works of myth and mystery.
