Illustrated end papers. 308 pp. with color and bw images throughout. Catalogue from the exhibition of the same title held at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, from April - August 2016. "Known for its whimsy and levity, Paul Klee's art is often considered gleefully childlike. This companion book to an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou illustrates how Paul Klee s critical and ironic take on life was evident in every stage of his oeuvre. Featuring approximately 250 works, this careful appreciation of Klee connects each stage of his career to the larger philosophical context. Exploring the satires and caricatures of Klee's youth, his experimentations in Cubism and mechanical theatre, and the constructivist approach of the Bauhaus school, this book follows the trajectory of Klee s oeuvre as a reflection of prevailing styles. It closes with the artist's final years, in which he was labelled a degenerate artist by the Nazi regime and struggled with illness. Viewed through the many facets of irony as a complex theme, and against the backdrop of Europe's seismic political and artistic movements, Klee s body of work takes on a renewed significance as one of the most critical of its generation's." - museum web site.
