This is a superbly illustrated exploration of the artistic and theoretical work of Paul Klee during his seminal Bauhaus period.
Paul Klee (1879-1940) was Swiss/German painter whose highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism.
Klee was a natural draftsman who experimented with and eventually mastered colour theory.
From 1921 to 1931, Klee taught at the world renowned Bauhaus, alongside his friend and colleague Wassily Kandinsky.
His lectures from this period, collected together in the volume Writings on Form and Design Theory, are considered so important for modern art that they are often compared to the importance that Leonardo da Vinci's A Treatise on Painting had for the Renaissance.
This magnificently illustrated volume brings together a selection of more than 100 works, including paintings, watercolours, and drawings made between 1899 and 1940, as well as a wide range of handwritten notes from Klee's landmark lectures at the Bauhaus.
