Klee, Paul Biography


Was a Swiss painter whose art of free fantasy, perhaps the most poetic of modern times, is best defined in his own words as 'taking a line for a walk'. Paul Klee was trained in Munich and went to Italy (1901-2), after which he returned to Switzerland and began etching. Paul Klee’s early graphic work was influenced by William Blake and Beardsley as well as Goya, and, later, Ensor. He worked in Germany from 1906 until 1933, teaching for many years at the celebrated Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau, and later at Dtisseldorf Academy. From 1911 he was associ­ated with the Blaue Reiter artists, and was especially close to Kandinsky, Feininger and Jawlensky (they were known, from 1924, as the 'Blue Four'): all four were German by adoption, not by birth. In 1914 he went to Tunisia with August Macke, an experience which revealed a new world of color to him.
