The Castle in the sun - Paul Klee

In the work "Castle and Sun" Paul Klee represents two worlds: the figurative and the abstract. A musical rhythm emanates from the small colored tiles. The geometric shapes, arranged in harmony, breathe life into the castle under the blazing sun. The work in warm tones is broken down into multiple forms referring to scientific developments on the perception of color.

The artist

Born in Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland, Paul Klee (1879 - 1940) first tried his hand at music, his first vocation. He then turned to painting in 1898, when he began studying art in Munich, a city strongly influenced by post-impressionism. At the same time, he discovered the paintings of Cézanne and Van Gogh. In 1910, he joined the "Blaue Reiter" group, whose members were followers of modern abstract trends, to exhibit his works. Shortly before the First World War, he went to Tunisia and painted numerous watercolors, marked by the local colors. After the war, he was hired as an art teacher at the Bauhaus in Germany, but his work was decried by the Nazis. Seventeen of his paintings were shown in Munich in an exhibition called "Degenerate Art", aimed at discrediting unconventional artists.
