The definitive monograph on the most personable of modernist painters, Paul Klee: Life and Work, is back in print. This book presents both a biography and the most generous selection of Klee’s tender, magical paintings and drawings. In clear chronological groupings from his association with Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc’s Der Blaue Reiter group, to his core faculty position at the Bauhaus, to his branding as a “degenerate artist” by the Nazis, the full scope of Klee's art and life are methodically presented. I’ve always been enchanted by magical figurative paintings like Fish Magic and The Twittering Machine, but with this book I developed a new appreciation for his distinctly personal brand of abstraction. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
