Today, after a Physio lesson for my almost recovered knee, I headed off to the Centre Pompidou in Paris to visit the Paul Klee exhibition that opened back in April. I was very impressed by his work and by how much there was to see.
To summarise the artist in question, Paul Klee is a Swiss/German painter from the early 20th century.(1879 -1940) He is largely associated with the Expressionist movement but was ceaselessly reinventing himself, shifting from abstract to figurative works making him a multifaceted artist.
He is also widely known for his colour theories, an interest of his that started after a trip to Tunisia He once said: “ Colour and I are one. I am a painter”. ( April 1914) Colour had a big role in a lot of his work, transforming simplistic lines into very illustrative pieces.
It is definitely worth a visit if you are around Paris this summer. The exhibition ends on August the 1st and you can find more information on https://www.centrepompidou.fr .
I’ll stop babling on, here are a few photos of the exhibition.
There is also a very cool rooftop restaurant at the top of the building with an amazing view onto Paris!
