Historically contextualized and interpreted as pictorial writing, Klee's familiar line drawings are shown to be a radical reinterpretation of the ut pictora poesis tradition of visual texts that question whether there is a substantive difference between writing and drawing. Aichele's multilayered readings of works from every decade of Klee's career demonstrate that the artist's doubly coded language was his most far-reaching contribution to the aesthetics of modernism."--Jacket.
