Paul Klee was an influential Swiss-born painter, printmaker, and draughtsman of German nationality. He was originally associated with the German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter and later taught at the Bauhaus in the interwar period. His artwork is highly individualistic and characterized by movements such as expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. Notable pieces from the artist include Embrace – Paul Klee (1939), a painting that reflects his personal style and is filled with allusions to dreams, music, and poetry.

Another notable piece of art from Klee is Dream City – Paul Klee (1921). This oil on paper piece displays his unique approach to landscape composition and combination of abstract forms that make up Dream City’s dream-like streetscape.

Together with other works of art from Paul Klee, these two paintings can captivate audiences all around the world with its unique artistry.
