Paul Klee: Philosophical Vision: From Nature to Art
Paul Klee: Philosophical Vision: From Nature to Art      This exhibition is the first to focus on the relationship between philosophy and Kleeís artistic oeuvre and to reveal the broad impact the artist has had on recent philosophical thought. It demonstrates how the artistís groundbreaking theories of nature, words, and music developed in his writings and lectures are translated into form, line, and color in his works of art. The exhibition also reveals Klee as an astute critic of modern society, especially with regard to the impact of technology and the political failures that led to the rise of Nazism in Germany. A large number of works on display have been lent by the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern; other outstanding examples come from the Beyeler Museum, Boston Public Library, Colby College Museum of Art, Columbus Art Museum, Davis Museum and Cultural Center (Wellesley College), Harvard Art Museums, Houghton Library (Harvard University), Mount Holyoke College Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), Museum of Modern Art (New York), Metropolitan Museum of Art, Phillips Collection, Saint Louis Art Museum, and Smith College Museum of Art.
