Paul Klee (December 18, 1879 – 29 June, 1940), was a Swiss expressionist painter, professor, writer and illustrator. He was one of the most important artists of the twentieth century and an important theorist of art, considered a model and an inspiration to younger generations.
He was influenced by Picasso and Braque in the cubist period. Paul Klee made a splendid trip to Tunisia and Kairuan, which turned out to be an unique spiritual experience. He seeks into nature and in the real universe the specific meaning according to his own artistic vision. He tends to surrealism, where the figurative interpenetrates with abstract, the static architectural elements with the dynamic ones. His paintings go from figurative to abstract, from humor to delirious. In addition to formal logic in the strict sense, he sought a dream language, a subtlety in the atmosphere, but also a symbolic of images and signs.
