Paul Klee (1879- 1940)
German / Swiss expressionist painter

Paul Klee's highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism.
He experimented with and eventually mastered color theory, and wrote extensively about it.
His works reflect his dry humor and his sometimes child-like perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, and his musicality.
Klee and his friend Wassily Kandinsky taught at the German Bauhaus school of art and architecture.
From nearly the start, the Nazi movement denounced the Bauhaus for its "degererate art " or "entartete kunst " and in 1933 the Bauhaus was finally shut down.
In 1937, seventeen of Klee's pictures were included in an exhibition of degenerate art and 102 of his works in public collections were seized by the Nazis.

Quote: "The painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen"
