Biography
Born in Munchenbuchsee, Switzerland in 1879, Klee studied art at the Munich Academy of Fine Art from 1898 to 1901. At the beginning of the Great War he was living in Germany and was conscripted, but did not see active service. He describes his wartime experiences in Diaries: 1898-1918.

Subsequent to the First World War, Klee taught art at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau where he was held in high regard for both his teaching and his writing. It was during this period that he wrote the Pedagogical Sketchbook (1925).

With Hitler's rise to power and the fascist state's view of his paintings as "degenerate art", he returned to Switzerland.

Klee MOA
by Will Grohmann
Book Description: This colorful monograph features and surveys the 150 best-known works of Paul Klee, an artist famous for the playful complexity of his multi-media images. Klee never ceased his quest for new subjects and sources of inspiration, and he experimented with geometry, materials, and color to represent fauna and flora, music, the diurnal, and the nocturnal.

As a teacher at the famous Bauhaus School in Weimar, Klee played an important role in the evolution of applied arts. Author Jean-Louis Ferrier provides an insightful text that explains the complex, often misunderstood work of Klee. In addition, this monograph includes extracts from Klee's theatrical work, including the famous Pedagogical Sketchbook used by his students at the Bauhaus. Comprehensive and fresh, this new study of Paul Klee will delight students and enthusiasts of twentieth-century art.

Paul Klee: His Life and Work
by Carolyn Lanchner (Editor), et al
Book Description: Fitting Paul Klee's extraordinary oeuvre into book form is certainly a complex endeavor--Klee's diverse body of work is always opening itself up to new interpretations, and has escaped classification under the aegis of any particular style, group, or movement. This monograph achieves this feat by offering Klee in all his uniqueness, never attempting to subject the artist and his work to one interpretation. Here we see Klee's organically developed and open-ended art, which sought inspiration everywhere and in turn inspired so many in all areas of the arts. Fairytale lyricism and grotesque satire, tender jesting and very real horror, profound mysticism and sober romanticism all coexist in Klee's images. These works radiate a variety and creative energy that is rarely seen in such profusion. "Paul Klee: Life and Work" presents a comprehensive selection of paintings and other images, documented in nearly 500 color and black-and-white images, alongside essays that explore the artist's life and offer surprising insights into his work. "To wander through Klee's work is a wonderful, exciting adventure, an adventure of the spirit and of the heart. Amazing insights into the spheres of nature, and material things, of bestial creatures and of human beings are revealed, insights into cosmic episodes full of wit and profundity."--Carola Giedion-Welcker
