Klee was driven by the 'musicality of art' as can be seen in his style. Here we see the deep influence which theatre had upon him.. This big beautiful book presents the theatre world of Europe at klee's time. Then goes onto give over 200 color reproductions highlighting his passion for all things theatre. Degas had his ballet, Klee had the theatre.
Reproductions of ballet, dance, clowns, singers, masks all of course Klee style. But what makes this book stand out from ALL the others are the dozens and dozens of reproductions not seen in any of the other Klee book we have seen. Usually the standard fair of Klee pictures seem to come out from a common catalog. Then each book has maybe ten unique reproductions to bring delight. Well with over 10,000 lifetime paintings and drawings you would think we would have had exposure to more that the usual 300. Well here you have a chance to see an additional 120 or so. Great quality. Printed on strong paper in a big book by Hatje Cantz Verlag, Switzerland. Well Paul was Swiss after all. All in all there are 383 illustrations.
The text deals strictly with the interaction and involvement which Klee had with the theatre. It does not go into his lifetime achievements.
This book along with " His Life and Work" would make a strong cornerstone in any Klee collection.
