Summary
"Paul Klee: Philosophical Vision, From Nature to Art is the first exhibition and catalogue to focus on the relationship between philosophy and Klee's prolific artistic oeuvre, and to reveal the broad impact the artist has hadon recent philosophical thought. The catalogue demonstrates how Klee's groundbreaking theories-of nature, words, and music as developed in his writings and lectures-are translated into form, line, and color in his works of art. Paul Klee: Philosophical Vision includes essays contributed by fifteen distinguished philosophers and art historians. It features color reproductions of each work in the exhibition as well as a new translation of Klee's famous lecture, ''On Modern Art.''" -- Publisher's description.
