Late Klee

October 18, 2012–March 31, 2013

This selection of watercolors, drawings and paintings focuses on the last fifteen years of Paul Klee's life, from 1925 to 1940. During these years he moved with the Bauhaus from Weimar to Dessau, taught at the Düsseldorf Academy, and returned to his native Bern in late 1933. His fatal illness was diagnosed in 1936. Aware that he had not much time left to live, Klee worked more rapidly and his style changed: lines became heavy, forms broad and generalized, and colors simpler.
