Item# 80-016475 







Description

A prolific artist, writer, and teacher, Paul Klee (German, born in Switzerland, 18791940) was a distinctive force in twentieth century art. He made playful, inventive works characterized by a highly individual style of abstracted forms and symbols. Our intriguing tie pattern is based on Temple Gardens (gouache and traces of ink on paper, 1920) in the Museums collection, which appears to recall the artists impressions from his visit to Tunisia in 1914. Klees watercolor has the brilliance of a stained-glass window on a sunny day.

Silk. 3 3/4''W. Imported.

Art History

In addition to being involved with German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), Paul Klees (German, b. Switzerland, 18791940) work was also influenced by the Cubism of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, and the abstract translucent color planes of Robert Delaunay. The artist completed some 10,000 works throughout his career. Nearly half of his pieces were produced during the ten years he taught at the Bauhausa school of architecture and industrial design that focused on re-imagining the material world to reflect the unity of all the arts.
