Paul Klee – Making Visible at The Tate Modern

25.10.2013

Modernist, abstract artist, Bauhaus teacher; Paul Klee’s career was far-reaching and hugely valuable within art history. This latest exhibition on show at the Tate Modern traces the full extent of the Swiss-born artist’s career, from his early abstract colour patchworks to the more line-focused works created in the years leading up to his death in 1940.

The exhibition features a total of 130 paintings, drawings and watercolours that are grouped as Klee himself grouped them when he was alive. This curation provides a fascinating insight into the artist’s thought process. As you wander from room to room, the gestation of Klee’s style is revealed.

Vibrant and arguably groundbreaking, we recommend spending a rainy Saturday afternoon with Klee’s oeuvre.
