Paul Klee on art and visibility

by quaesitor
Paul Klee (by Alexander Eliasberg 1911)

We were out and about en famille looking at junk and antique shops on Saturday, on Church St, just off Lisson Grove. And we came across this rather inspiring headline on a shop front – in many ways, it sums up far more pithily and profoundly, precisely what I was getting at in my post on Hockney.

Paul Klee was an artist with a unique vision – full of vibrant colour, strange abstractions and even music. Very different from Hockney in many ways. And perhaps even more inspiring. But this quotation does offer an inspiring apologetic for the greatest art of every generation.
