May Picture by Paul Klee: one of Paul Klee's Magic Square series of oil paintings and watercolors that derive from the 1914 Tunisian watercolors in which he fractured the landscape into squares. They are also related to Klee's preoccupation with the laws of color, prompted by his teaching at the Bauhaus. #Painting #Paul_Klee #Magic_Squares
BAUHAUS ARCHIVE Metropolitan Museum. Gunta Stoltzl attended the first classes given by Paul Klee. Her abstract works on paper show the influence of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky and anticipate the boldly colorful abstract wall hangings and blankets she produced from 1923 onwards.
