Book a week - Paul Klee

My book this week is about the artist Paul Klee. Unfortunately I did not make it to see the recent exhibition at The Tate of his work but it did prompt me to select this book & revisit some of the images.... the pictures below are some of my favourites from this publication: beautiful colours & patterns.  
The book was published by Park Lane in 1993.  There are lots of books available on this artist here
Unstable Balance 1922

Senecio 1922

Composition 1914
Paul Klee is a giant of twentieth-century art and one of the great creative innovators of the time.
Witty, inventive, magical, his exquisite paintings resist easy classification. He is mentioned in the same breath as MatissePicasso and his Bauhaus contemporary Kandinsky. He cuts a radical figure in European modernism. His influence on abstraction can be seen in the works of RothkoMiró and beyond. And yet, for an artist of such stature, there is still so much to discover about him.
