Paul Klee wasn’t only a great painter, but a very influential teacher too. This exhibition in Madrid focuses on it. In the 20s of 20th century, the Swiss artist worked as an instructor in the German school Bauhaus, probably the most important school of contemporary art. Visitors can approach to this role by reading some of the manuscripts wrote by Paul Klee, which have more than 3,900 pages. Notes and books in which the Swiss artist developed his colour, rhythm and nature theories, and helped him during his classes in Bauhaus. This exhibition in Madrid will display those personal pieces. Of course, an exhibition about Paul Klee must display artworks too. In this case, the paintings chosen accompany the notes, serving as examples of those theories and ideas. Photos and other documents can also be seen in order to reconstruct the context the Swiss painter taught in the German School.
This Paul Klee exhibition will be held at the Juan March Foundation, a big art space located in 77 Castelló Street. This place is reachable by Metro, getting off in Nuñez de Balboa Station (Line 9). It will be on stage from March 22nd to June 30th.
