4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Herbert L Calhoun on November 30, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Paul Klee died in 1940 without his work being fully appreciated for its depth, beauty, intricacy and theoretical soundness as modern art.

Klee during his lifetime, was better known for his teaching than for his artistic work. He was an impassioned teacher and left a large body of theoretical work and notes on artistic techniques.

This short book of plates of some of his most famous work is a beautiful summary of how his work captures the primitive as well as the alien. It is rich, in both the foreground and the background, that is to say, rather than being completely spontaneous it is well planned and well-thought out: like a mathematician or geometer equations. Yet, most of his work looks spontaneous and fresh.

Here, perhaps belatedly is a small monument to the world's foremost artistic theoretician.

Format: Hardcover
this small book is packed with wonderful pictures and detailed tidbits. It has much to offer on the life of Klee, some art history, and includes some copies of mixed artwork from Klee.
