For more than a decade, Dr. Carl Djerassi has generously shared his collection of over 130 works by Paul Klee through frequent exhibitions at SFMOMA, making the Museum a destination for Klee enthusiasts worldwide. Ranging from clever figure drawings to watercolor landscapes of places familiar and fantastical, this focused exhibition features sixteen of Djerassi's most recent acquisitions, including a suite of remarkable Bauhaus promotional cards that will appear as a complete unit for the first time.
