Summary:
"In the course of his creativity, Klee developed his artistic will slowly, almost hesitantly. His work formed organically. Undogmatic and open to all graphic life, he let himself be inspired by the art of the past and the present.

Abstract:

"In the course of his creativity, Klee developed his artistic will slowly, almost hesitantly. His work formed organically. Undogmatic and open to all graphic life, he let himself be inspired by the art of the past and the present. Fairytale lyrics and grotesque satire, tender jesting and real demonism, profound mysticism and sober romanticism live in Klee's work, which always radiates his personal sphere with all its variety. In this monograph, an immensely compressed picture of the artistic as well as the human side of his career evolves by way of the extensive pictorial material and accompanying essays, a picture which gives information about "Klee's contribution to the expansion of artistic articulation"."--BOOK JACKET.
