Sono qui comprese le lezioni tenute a Weimar durante il breve semestre estivo del 1923 che proseguono e precisano quelle dedicate alla teoria dei colori nell'inverno del '22, nonché le esercitazioni del semestre invernale 1923-24, riservate all'analisi dei Mezzi figurativi in connessione con lo studio della natura. Viene poi inclusa un'accurata testimonianza dell'attività didattica dopo il trasferimento a Dessau della sede del Bauhaus, dove spiccano i corsi del biennio 1928-29, i quali, nonostante gli appunti lasciati dall'artista si spingano fino al dicembre del 1933 (all'epoca del suo definitivo ritorno a Berna), possono essere a ragione considerati l'estrema trascrizione in termini concettuali del suo prodigioso microcosmo pittorico. Predilezione teorica dei corsi e degli appunti riportati è lo studio delle energie primarie che, mimetiche rispetto alla crescita di un complesso organico, governano il processo di maturazione figurativa per il quale viene a crearsi l'immagine compiuta

Paul Klee by Jean Louis Ferrier( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Louis Ferrier's highly original interpretation offers us a new point of entrance into Paul Klee's playful, mysterious world. Of the artist's corpus of 8,926 works, 140 are illustrated here. Born into a family of musicians, Klee long hesitated between painting and the violin, and music remained a major source of inspiration. His quest to geometrize the subject and his work on materials, line and colour proved seminal. He began teaching at the Bauhaus in 1920, making a major contribution to the development of the visual arts. To this distinguished teaching career we owe his celebrated theoretical works, notably the Pedagogical Sketch Book."--Jacket

Paul Klee's pictorial writing by Kathryn Porter Aichele( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Klee's Pictorial Writing examines the artist's appropriation of verbal signs, literary texts, and written scripts in his pictorial works. K. Porter Aichele's study is the first to examine how linguistic symbols function in Klee's work and what they mean. Reconstructing the artist's rich cultural milieu from his diaries, letters, lecture notes, and visual allusions, Aichele shows how these sources provide the framework for fresh interpretations of works ranging from letter forms in pictorial settings to invented visual texts. Historically contextualized and interpreted as pictorial writing, Klee's familiar line drawings are shown to be a radical reinterpretation of the ut pictora poesis tradition of visual texts that question whether there is a substantive difference between writing and drawing. Aichele's multilayered readings of works from every decade of Klee's career demonstrate that the artist's doubly coded language was his most far-reaching contribution to the aesthetics of modernism."--Jacket
