Description

This case of our artful colored pencil set features a detail from May Picture by Paul Klee (German, born Switzerland, 1879–1940), an original 1925 work in The Met collection.

Known for linear, childlike imagery, abstracted forms and symbols, and an enthusiasm for color relationships, Paul Klee pursued a wide range of subjects during his long career, such as literature, music, poetry, and daily life. Klee was influenced by the Cubism of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, as well as his involvement with the German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) and his lifelong friendship with fellow artist Wassily Kandinsky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The color blending of these pencils is exquisite. I was doubtful at first since the pencil controls the shading and not the user. However, I was delighted with the result. It gives a very professional blending and just by varying pressure on the pencil the blending can be changed. I just wish I knew how to sharpen them, given that they are triangular and I don't know if using a regular sharpener would change the result. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Coloring! I love to color, especially to use beautiful colors. These pencils are very unique in that they make your coloring look like you shaded or incorporated other colors into whatever it is you are doing. It has been interesting and fun to see the results of using these blended color pencils. I have begun to sort out what I want to color so that I can use these pencils.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the one pencil I went to the met and bought the green one only, big mistake, I should of bought all the colors. Now that I'm looking back I want to get them but they do not have them single anymore which it's upsetting because although these are it all in one case, the do not say "The Metropolitan Museum of Art New York" on the side, these just have the actual brand... I would love the whole set but with that on the side. I ended buying the regular black led one instead because people there either didn't know what I was talking about or they lied when they said they no longer sell them... and pointed me to the black led ones. I wish they carried them again with the name of THE ME.T.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful to see! Delightful to use! I have owned one or two pencils like these over the years and so enjoyed them. The marbled color is always a surprise when drawing. And, after using them a bit you develop techniques for rotating the pencil in your hand to add bursts or line of color changes. When I saw this set available from the Met I was so pleased. The pencils and the tin they come in could be a display piece themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Artist Gift The pencils were a gift to my budding artist granddaughter. Her face glowed is awe when she unwrapped her gift. The pencils are enclosed in a beautiful storage case. These pencils flow onto the artist paper and blend beautifully. MjG Alabama

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colorblind user I am red-green (partially) colorblind. I like these pencils because they allow me to get very cool blended effects without having to get someone to choose complementary colors for me.
