Paul Klee

Wit and Wordplay

April 07-September 04, 2001

Whimsical and playful, Paul Klee's work is beloved for its colorful shapes and delightful flights of fancy. Drawn from the collection of Dr. Carl Djerassi, this exhibition presents 15 works on paper that explore Klee's sense of humor, ranging from his witty imagery to the subtle nuances of his titles.
