Artists of the 20th Century: Paul Klee

2004 NR

Swiss-born painter and graphic artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) is famed for highly personal yet humorous works that allude to dreams, music and poetry. Klee's art is hard to nail down and borrows from primitive art, Surrealism and Cubism -- all styles that he blended together into small, intimate paintings, watercolors and drawings. Part of the "Artists of the 20th Century" series that examines the life and work of major artists of the century.
