Paul Klee (1879–1940) is one of the most influential painters of European modernism.

With an oeuvre of nearly 10,000 works, numerous solo and group exhibitions were organized not only during his lifetime. To this day, interest in his work remains high. And yet: There has not yet been an exhibition that has dealt comprehensively with Klee’s relationship to abstraction.

This gap is closed by the fondation Beyeler’s show and with it the accompanying catalogue, which is »accompanied« by insightful texts by renowned authors. As a red thread, four thematic groups – nature, architecture, painting and characters – run through Klee’s work, whose repertoire of forms repeatedly oscillates between the semi-representational and the absolutely abstract and which are examined here in separate chapters. In this way, not only can he gain in-depth insights into his preoccupation with abstraction, but also reveal new references to contemporaries and artists of later generations.
