Now available in flexi-cover, this fascinating work examines the relationship between music and painting in Paul Klee's art. A talented violinist as well as a painter, Klee drew much of the inspiration for his abstract art from musical rhythms and structures. Like a composer, he developed and harmonized pictorial themes, weaving a complex series of signs and symbols into his painting. The book focuses on Klee's decadelong tenure at the Bauhaus, where the artist's theories and practices first merged. Illustrated throughout with full-color reproductions of Klee's paintings and etchings, as well as entries from his diaries, this unique study sheds light on an important aspect of Klee's work while providing insights into his development as an abstract artist.

When it comes to viewing art, living in the information age is not necessarily a benefit. So argues Michael Findlay in this book that encourages a new way of looking at art. Much of this thinking involves stripping away what we have been taught and instead trusting our own instincts, opinions, and reactions. Including reproductions of works by Mark Rothko, Paul Klee, Joan Miró, Jacob Lawrence, and other modern and contemporary masters, this book takes readers on a journey through modern art. Chapters such as “What Is a Work of Art?”, “Can We Look and See at the Same Time?”, and “Real Connoisseurs Are Not Snobs,” not only give readers the confidence to form their own opinions, but also encourages them to make connections that spark curiosity, intellect, and imagination. “The most important thing for us to grasp,” writes Findlay, “is that the essence of a great work of art is inert until it is seen. Our engagement with the work of art liberates its essence.” After reading this book, even the most intimidated art viewer will enter a museum or gallery feeling more confident and leave it feeling enriched and inspired.

Paul Klee (1879?1940) verschrieb sich nicht nur der Kunst, sondern war auch Musiker und darüber hinaus ein großer Liebhaber des Theaters ? und zwar so sehr, dass er zu Beginn seiner Laufbahn zwischen beiden Metiers schwankte. Die bildende Kunst siegte, aber der Musik blieb er lebenslang verbunden, pflegte das Geigenspiel und besuchte Konzerte und Opernaufführungen. Im Katalog spiegelt sich anschaulich die enge Verbindung von Musik und Kunst in Text und Bild wider: Rhythmen und Melodien sind eingeflossen in Landschaften, Architekturen und abstrakte Kompositionen, Pathos und Witz des Bühnenspiels liegen vielen seiner Figurenszenen zu Grunde ? es gilt sie zu entdecken.00Exhibition: GalerieThomas, München, Germany (23.02. - 12.05.2018).

A beautiful collection of the legendary thinker’s short stories The Storyteller gathers for the first time the fiction of the legendary critic and philosopher Walter Benjamin, best known for his groundbreaking studies of culture and literature, including Illuminations, One-Way Street and The Arcades Project. His stories revel in the erotic tensions of city life, cross the threshold between rational and hallucinatory realms, celebrate the importance of games, and delve into the peculiar relationship between gambling and fortune-telling, and explore the themes that defined Benjamin. The novellas, fables, histories, aphorisms, parables and riddles in this collection are brought to life by the playful imagery of the modernist artist and Bauhaus figure Paul Klee.

Offering a fresh look at one of the major artists of the 20th century, this book illustrates how Paul Klee's critical and ironic take on life was evident in every stage of his oeuvre. Known for its whimsy and levity, Paul Klee's art is often considered gleefully childlike. This groundbreaking volume argues that Klee's style emerged from a philosophical school that originated with early German Romanticism and consisted of perpetual shifts between satire and affirmation of the absolute, finite and infinite, and real and ideal. Featuring approximately 250 works, this careful appreciation of Klee connects each stage of his career to the larger philosophical context. Exploring the satires and caricatures of Klee's youth, his experimentations in Cubism and "mechanical theater," and the constructivist approach of the Bauhaus school, this book follows the trajectory of Klee's oeuvre as a reflection of prevailing styles. It closes with the artist's final years, in which he was labeled a "degenerate artist" by the Nazi regime and struggled with illness. Viewed through the many facets of irony as a complex theme, and against the backdrop of Europe's seismic political and artistic movements, Klee's body of work takes on a renewed significance as one of the most critical of its generation.
