Paul Klee (1879 – 1940) was an ingenious modern art master with an extensive stylistic range. Klee created small, delicate works, filling them with traces of dreams, music, poetry, and stylistically blended primitive art, Surrealism, Cubism and children’s art. Klee’s initial pen-and-ink drawings were transformed after he visited Tunisia and became smitten with the color and light he found there. Fusing abstraction with reality, Klee fills his work with complex symbols derived from the unconscious. Klee’s work and innovations profoundly influenced 20th century Surrealism, Abstract and Nonobjective art.
This intaglio print was produced in an unknown edition size.
This fine art print was created using an intaglio etching process. Intaglio printing is an intensive labor of love in which the artist creates an image with varnish or waxes over a zinc or copper plate, and burns the image into the metal using an acid solution. Inks are applied to the metal plate and each print is pulled by hand.
