Synopsis

Paul Klee by Silke Vry

It's no wonder that young people are drawn to the work of Paul Klee. The German artist was fascinated by children's drawings, and incorporated their energy and simplicity into his own work. This beautiful introduction to Klee's paintings focuses on the artist's love of colour and symbols, his light-hearted technique and his belief that music and painting were inextricably linked. Children will relate to the stories about Klee's life and struggles as an artist while learning about art. Eye-catching reproductions of Klee's masterpieces show children how the artist used lines, pigments and texture in imaginative new ways. Enticing suggestions invite readers to try different art activities and projects.
