Biography
b. Münchenbuchsee, nr Berne, 18 Dec 1879; d. Muralto, nr Locarno, 29 June 1940. Swiss painter, draughtsman, printmaker, teacher and writer. Klee's work forms a major contribution to the history of 20th-century art. He is associated most commonly with the Bauhaus school in Weimar and Dessau. He is regarded as a major theoretician among modern artists and as a master of humour and mystery. In much of his work, he aspired to achieve a naive and untutored quality, but his art is also among the most cerebral of any of the 20th century. Klee's wide-ranging intellectual curiosity is evident in an art profoundly informed by structures and themes drawn from music, nature and poetry. (The Grove Dictionary of Art)
