  • Overview

  • Details

Now available again, this fascinating book examines the relationship between music and painting in Klee’s art.

A talented violinist as well as a painter, Klee drew much of the inspiration for his abstract art from musical rhythms and structures. Like a composer, he developed and harmonized pictorial themes, weaving a complex series of signs and symbols into his painting. The book focuses on Klee’s decadelong tenure at the Bauhaus, where the artist’s theories and practices first merged. Illustrated throughout with full-color reproductions of Klee’s paintings and etchings, as well as entries from his diaries, this unique study sheds light on an important aspect of Klee’s work while providing insights into his development as an abstract artist.
