Paul Klee - Making Visible
Paul Klee is one of the most prolific artists of the twentieth century. The recent exhibition at the Tate Modern contains work from almost every stage of Klee’s career, giving us a glimpse into the artist’s exciting, varied and rich world. There are 130 works distributed through 17 rooms, with optical tricks, jokes and surprises, and it is not only a big exhibition in terms of size, but also richness.
Klee’s art has a purpose, in addition to being beautiful and entertaining. He wanted every single of his works to be autonomous, and in his most well known aphorism said “the point of art is not to reproduce the visible, but to make visible”.
Paul Klee Exhibition is at the Tate Modern, until March 9th.
