On modern art by Paul Klee( Book )

97 editions published between 1945 and 1998 in 9 languages and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the essence of Klee's philosophy of painting and is probably the finest, clearest description of abstract art as understood by the creator and not the critic. Klee's genius as a guide was to transform exact scientific observation - which event he layman can grasp - into inspired imaginative interpretations of the human mind and the symbolic patterns it makes of the natural world

Paul Klee : the Berggruen Klee collection in the Metropolitan Museum of Art by Sabine Rewald( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The German painter Paul Klee (1879-1940) has become one of today's most popular artists. Ninety works by Klee--including drawings, watercolors, and oils, either serious, comical, capricious, or dramatic--have recently been given to the Metropolitan Museum of Art by one of the postwar era's leading art dealers and collectors, Heinz Berggruen, and are now published together in this volume for the first time. The works in the distinguished Berggruen Klee Collection, now a permanent part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's holdings, span the career of the artist from his student days in Bern in the 1890s to his death in Muralto-Locarno in 1940. All aspects of Klee both as a draftsman and as a painter are illustrated in these ninety works. Paul Klee is not only one of today's most popular artists, but he is also one of the most written about. In an illuminating addition to the vast literature on Klee, Sabine Rewald opens this study with a candid interview with the artist's only son, Felix, which took place in Bern in February 1986. Accompanied by documentary and informal photographs of the Klee family, it gives pointed and witty insights into the artist's private life. It also offers a behind-the-scenes view of the Bauhaus, where Paul Klee taught and where Felix Klee was a student. Most of the ninety works in the Berggruen Klee Collection are reproduced in full-page colorplates, and each one is accompanied by an extensive entry. These entries incorporate biographical information and quotations from Klee's letters, the latter as yet unpublished in English. The book includes an extensive chronology and a bibliography." -- Provided by publisher
Candide, Zadig, and selected stories by Voltaire( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Candide-a classic parody of the romantic, coming-of-age story-and the fifteen other stories in this indispensible collection, Voltaire derided the bureaucracies of his day with ruthless wit. His dissections of science, spiritual faith, legal systems, vanity, and love make him the undisputed master of social commentary
Paul Klee: the thinking eye; the notebooks of Paul Klee by Paul Klee( Book )

11 editions published between 1961 and 1964 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Klee by Donald Wigal( )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Klee fut un de ces artistes difficilement classables au sein des grands mouvements de l'histoire de l'art. Proche de Wassily Kandinsky et de Franz Marc, il s'associa au groupe expressionniste Der Blaue Reiter. Plus tard, il prit part à l'épopée Bauhaus en y dispensant des cours de peinture. Pourtant, celui selon lequel l'art n'était pas fait pour reproduire mais pour rendre visible, ne devait pas se limiter aux carcans d'un mouvement aussi innovant soit-il. Dans ses toiles à la lumière orientale, Klee mêla subtilement les tendances de ce début de XXe siècle. À l'Expressionisme allemand, i
Paul Klee by Jean-Louis Ferrier( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in 4 languages and held by 436 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 386 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

Paul Klee and the decorative in modern art by Jenny Anger( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the goals of modernism was the representation of the essence of art, or pure form. In this study, Jenny Anger examines Paul Klee's attitude toward and use of the decorative. She shows that the decorative, including its gendered associations, significantly informed Klee's art production, his exhibiting strategies, his critical response, and the discursive construction of his work for public consumption. She also compares his work with that of another major modernist, Henri Matisse, to confirm the critical role of the decorative in modernism. Finally, Anger explores the relevance of the decorative for contemporary, and especially women, artists."--Jacket
