The Angels of Paul Klee
Paul Klee painted angels for his entire life and here the author Boris Friedewald describes their creation and their meaning in Klee's work. This wonderful companion book to an exhibition at Zentrum Paul Klee features angels stretching through Klee's career : from the Christ child Paul Klee painted at the age of five, through cheerful and witty angels such as the Forgetful Angel up to the famous Angelus Novus who accompanied Walter Benjamin into exile and the Doubting Angel Paul Klee drew the year he died.
Boris Friedewald's stimulating and easy to read text introduces us to the meaning of angels in Paul Klee's oeuvre and to the artist's biography.
