Paul Klee is one of the major artists of the early twentieth century ... painter, educator, musician and poet.
His critical and ironic look at the world, at different times of his life, inspires satirical drawings, caricatures and paintings with titles sometimes serious, sometimes funny.
Through 250 works from major international collections of the Zentrum Paul Klee, the Centre Pompidou presents the work of the great German artist through the prism of romantic irony and its corollaries, satire and parody, and thereby triggering anunprecedented reading of his work.
This retrospective is divided into several stages namely the seven main stages of artistic and aesthetic development of the work of Paul Klee: "Satire and caricature" (Youth), "Cubism", "Mechanical Theatre" (Dada and Surrealism), "Constructivism" (Bauhaus), "Glance Back" (1930), "Picasso" and "Years of crisis" (between Nazi politics, war and disease).
