Paul Klee

Conductor of Color

November 02, 2000 - April 03, 2001

Though renowned for his accomplished draftsmanship, Swiss artist Paul Klee also developed an incredible command of color over the course of his career. With approximately fifteen paintings and works of paper, this focused exhibition takes a fresh look at Klee's wide-ranging experiments with color and its relationships to line, including his use of color as a visual expression of the effects of music.
