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.
This 11 x 14-inch reproduction of Paul Klee's Rote Säulen vorbeiziehend (Passing By Red Pillars) (1928) accompanies the exhibition In Celebration of Paul Mellon. Timed to coincide with the Gallery's 75th anniversary, this special exhibition celebrates the wonderful generosity of one of America's greatest art collectors and one of the Gallery's leading benefactors with 80 of the finest pastels, watercolors, drawings, prints, and illustrated books selected from his donations.
