Paul Klee was a painter born in Switzerland and is considered to be a German-Swiss. Movements in art that
included expressionism, cubism and surrealism influenced his highly individual style. He was also a student
of orientalism. Klee was a natural draftsman who experimented with and eventually got deep into color theory
writing about it extensively. He and his colleague, the Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, both taught at the
German Bauhaus School of art, design and architecture. His works reflect his dry humor and his sometimes
childlike perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, also his musicality.
