Ad Parnassum – (Paul Klee) Previous Next


Artist:

Style: Expressionism

Date: 1932

Size: 126 x 100 cm

Museum: Kunstmuseum (Bern, Switzerland)

Technique: Oil On Canvas

This painting, considered Klee’s masterpiece, is an example of Klee’s masterful skill with color. Small blocks of shifting colors float through the background, set in place with a thick black outline, evincing the idea of a building or a house. It is also the finest example of Klee’s ability in pointillism and technical ability as an artist. As an artist with great skill with color, he was also a great teacher at color mixing and theory. He wrote his great treatise, a collection of lectures, entitled Writings on Form and Design Theory, which is considered one of the most influential writings in modern art.
