Lindau’s Municipal Museum will be holding an exhibition in 2017 for yet another great artist: avant-garde painter-poet Paul Klee! From April to the end of August 2017, visitors to the Municipal Museum will be treated to an exquisite selection of his works.

Between Heaven and Earth The Imagery of Paul Klee

This presentation of the art of classical modernism marks a very special attraction for culture lovers visiting Lindau’s Municipal Museum. What started with Picasso’s “Master Drawings” in 2011 continued on in the following years with works by Marc Chagall, Joan Miró, Henri Matisse and Emil Nolde only to then illuminate the great themes running through the genius of that century with Picasso’s Passions. Respected exhibition organiser Dr Doschka is presenting selected works by Paul Klee in 2017, entitled, “Between Heaven and Earth. The Imagery of Paul Klee”.

Klee: Eminent Artist of Classical Modernism

Paul Klee (1879-1940) is emblematic of the avant-garde style of the past century, and is considered a great illustrator and painter-poet, whose creations bear witness to immense artistic fantasy and the pursuit of harmony in colour to the highest degree.

Also a highly talented musician, he created paintings with a variety of motifs and colour scales, often bringing to mind the polyphony of musical compositions. Klee experimented with different techniques and developed a distinctive language of imagery that was often accompanied by a proverbial ironic wink. His work now occupies a key place in the history of modern art.

With works from private European collections, museums and art foundations, the exhibition provides a broad view of the fascinating work of an artistic personality whose history is no less interesting when considered against the backdrop of contemporary history and is linked to Lake Constance and the city of Lindau itself. The exhibit will run from 1 April to 27 August 2017 from Monday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 06:00 pm, at the Municipal Museum in Lindau.
