By Donald Wigal

Paul Klee nació en 1879 en Münchenbuchsee, Suiza, y creció en una familia de músicos.

Es difícil clasificar a Klee como artista, ya que no se asoció con ningún movimiento en specific. En su obra se destacaron los temas satíricos y las representaciones de sueños y fantasías. El arte primitivo, el surrealismo y el cubismo parecen confundirse en sus delicadas pinturas en pequeña escala. El arte de Klee también se distinguió por una extraordinaria diversidad e innovación en l. a. técnica, siendo una de sus más efectivas los angeles transferencia al óleo. los angeles realizaba dibujando con un objeto puntiagudo en el reverso de una hoja recubierta con pintura al óleo y colocada sobre otra hoja. Como efecto secundario del proceso se creaban manchas y marcas de los pigmentos, pero eso daba a las obras de Klee una especie de impresión "fantasmal" que puede apreciarse en muchas de sus obras. Una de las pinturas más populares de Klee en l. a. actualidad es Der Goldfisch (El pez dorado) de 1925, en el que un luminoso pez destella en suspensión en un tenebroso mundo acuático. De 1920 a 1931, además de ser maestro en el Bauhaus, l. a. escuela de arte más avanzada de Alemania, Klee llevó una vida inmensamente productiva. Finalmente, con l. a. llegada al poder de los nazis, él y su esposa tuvieron que salir de Alemania para dirigirse a su natal Suiza. Las obras posteriores de Klee, en las que dominan las formas simplificadas y arcaicas, muestra una preocupación con los angeles mortalidad. Klee murió en 1940, después de una larga enfermedad.
