Paul Klee Art

Paul Klee Art

Paul Klee (1879-1940), a Swiss German painter and watercolorist, one of the most original masters of modern art. Klee created images known for their fantastic dream-like qualities, wit, and imagination. He was influenced by many different art styles, including Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. He was also a student of orientalism. Klee was also a master draftsman, and many of his works are elaborated line drawings with subject matter that grew out of fantasy or dream imagery - he described his technique in these drawings as "taking a line for a walk".

Klee was highly spiritual. Klee tended to see the world as a model, a kind of illusion run up by the cosmic clockmaker - God - to demonstrate spiritual truth. This helps account for the toy-like character of his fantasies; if the world had no final reality, it could be represented in the freest, most schematic way, and this Klee set out to do.

Klee's assumptions were unabashedly transcendentalist. "Formerly we used to represent things visible on earth," he wrote in 1920, "things we either liked to look at or would have liked to see. Today we reveal the reality that is behind visible things, thus expressing the belief that the visible world is merely an isolated case in relation to the universe and that there are many more other, latent realities..."

Klee's career was a search for the symbols and metaphors that would make this belief visible. More than any other painter outside the Surrealist movement (dreams, primitive art, myth, and cultural incongruity), he refused to draw hard distinctions between art and writing. Indeed, many of his paintings are a form of writing: they pullulate with signs, arrows, floating letters, misplaced directions, and commas; their code for any object, from the veins of a leaf to the grid pattern, makes no attempt at sensuous description, but instead declares itself to be a purely mental image, a hieroglyph existing in emblematic space.

Now Klee has become a classic whose pictures are reproduced in their thousands. They have established themselves so firmly in the collective memory that seeing the original can be an experience in its own right, a discovery. Klee developed a veritable cosmos of pictorial forms, presenting a wealth of creative beauty that has remained unique. Even when he compresses his pictorial resources to the utmost, he never slips into anything uncontrolled or random. Paul Klee's art demands undivided attention - and it is also capable of opening one's eyes to something that lies beyond the image itself.

Today, a painting by Paul Klee can sell for as much as $7 million.
