Paul Klee, the EY Exhibition

The Tate Modern has just opened an exhibition of the wonderful Paul Klee. Reduced to a twittering bird drawing in art history textbooks it's high time a broader look at his career has arrived in a major museum. Painting, drawings and watercolors from his time teaching at the Bauhaus is the focus of the exhibition.

Although Klee saw his art as a process of spontaneous creativity and natural growth, exemplified by his famous description of drawing as ‘taking a line for a walk’, he actually worked with great rigour. The exhibition will challenge Klee’s reputation as a solitary dreamer, revealing the innovation and rigour with which Klee created his work and presented it to the public.
