Abstract:

"Klee and America explores the reasons for Paul Klee's enthusiastic reception in the United States, especially during the 1930s and 1940s. While the artist was targeted in Hitler's campaign against "degenerate art," and the European market for his work collapsed in 1933, his reputation grew among several key American collectors and museum curators, many of whom laid the groundwork for Klee's later success in the United States. This book presents a selection of Klee's finest "American" works from that period, including both paintings and drawings."--Jacket.
