It’s been almost 47 years since the last major retrospective devoted to Paul Klee was held in France. Today, until August 1st, 2016, the Centre Pompidou offers visitors a chance to explore Klee’s most famous paintings by staging an exhibition that brings together about 250 of his artworks.
Born on December 18th, 1879, in Münchenbuchsee, near Bern, Switzerland, Paul Klee started his career at a very early age.
During his career, he produced more than 10.000 works of art that vary from Expressionism to Bauhaus, to Surrealism.
The exhibition Paul Klee at Centre Pompidou is divided into 7 main thematic parts: the satiric beginnings, Cubism; mechanical theatre, Constructivism, looking backward, Picasso, and the years of crisis.
Laughing Gothic of 1915, which is on loan from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, along with many other rare masterpieces such as the Vorführung des Wunders are also on view.
