 Paul Klee

born 1879 in Bern (CH) – died 1940 in Muralto (CH);
After his art studies in Munich Klee was primarily engaged witch the etching. A journey to Tunis together with the painter August Macke in 1914 involved him with the colour and the painting. With the beginning of the national socialism Klee left Germany again. His pictures were regarded as ‹entartet.› With his diaries an self-reflexions Klee left an important key to understand his work, which contains beyond its aesthetic effect a ideological confession.
