Happy birthday to Paul Klee, born on this day in 1879. In 1914, Klee visited Tunisia. The experience was the turning point in his life and career. The limpid light of North Africa awakened his sense of color. During his stay, Klee gradually detached color from physical description and used it independently, which gave him the final needed push toward abstraction. http://met.org/1k5rD8A

Swiss artist Paul Klee was born #onthisday in 1879. In 1921, he was hired as a faculty member of the Bauhaus school of art and design, where he taught the introductory course in basic design principles. This work titled ‘Die heilige vom inneren licht’ (The saint of the inner light) was made for publication in the first of the Bauhaus portfolios, devoted to the work of the masters teaching there http://ow.ly/VnZyD
"It is virtually impossible to confuse a work by Paul Klee with one by any other artist, even though many have emulated his idiosyncratic, enigmatic art," says Guggenheim Chief Curator Nancy Spector.

Klee's 'Moonrise and Sunset 1919'
What instrument did Paul Klee play?Paul Klee was a prolific Swiss painter who also played the violin for Bern's symphony orchestra. Born on this date in 1879 to a musical family, his affinity for music is often seen in his art. Klee was noted for his mastery of line, form and color, and his whimsical paintings tread the line between abstract and figurative. He produced more than 10,000 paintings, etchings and drawings over his lifetime. Klee spent much of his adult life in Germany teaching at the Bauhaus Academy, but, in 1933, Nazi persecution forced him to resign from the university and flee with his family back to Switzerland, where he had grown up — his mother was Swiss and his father was German. He was only granted Swiss citizenship posthumously.
