  • More Info



Paul Klee (1879 – 1940) was a painter born in Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland, and is considered to be a Swiss German. His particular style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism.

Expressionism was an artistic style that emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, especially in Germany and Austria, where subjective emotions and not objective reality was painted.

They rejected Impressionism, with its faithfulness to nature as it appeared. Their goal was to feel something visceral rather than how it looked on the surface and, by doing so, to reinvigorate art with authenticity and expressive force.

Expressionists used distortion, exaggeration, primitivism, fantasy and vivid, jarring violent applications of the formal elements of their compositions. Extreme angles, flattened forms, garish colors, and distorted views are distinctive features of Expressionism, which flourished between 1905 and 1920.

This painting comes from a group of paintings called 'Cities'. We have here a landscape filled with dark columns or towers side by side with a church steeple and exploded cityscapes with a large chestnut leaf at upper left.

A large column on the right is swallowing parks and buildings as it begins to rear its face against a yellow sunset.

A small sailboat appears at bottom right sailing into this, one of the new wonders of the world.

Large, original vintage frame scuffed in places. Lithograph in good condition, ready to hang.
