About the Artist
Though Paul Klee (1879–1940) has been variously associated with expressionism, cubism, futurism, surrealism, and abstraction, his works are not easily classified as he was inventive in his methods, techniques, and mediums. Klee is known for his simple stick figures, fish, moon faces, eyes, arrows, and quilts of color, which he orchestrated into whimsical and childlike, yet deeply meditative, works.
The purple-and-yellow block pattern on this silk scarf was inspired by Paul Klee's Architecture (1923) from his Magic Squares series. The artist explored the effects of color and chiaroscuro (the treatment of light and shade) on a rhythmic repetition of geometric elements.
