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.
These dual ended pencils are housed in a decorative tin featuring Paul Klee's watercolor Dampfer und Segelbōte (Dredger and Sailboat) (1931) from the collection of the National Gallery of Art. This set is a thoughtful gift for any student or artist on the go.
- Contains 12 dual ended pencils, 24 colors
