About Southern (Tunisian) Gardens

The artwork titled “Southern (Tunisian) Gardens” was created by artist Paul Klee in 1919. This work, executed in watercolor, is an example of abstract art and measures 9.5 x 7.5 inches. Originally part of the Collection Heinz Berggruen in Paris, the piece exemplifies Klee’s unique style within the abstract movement.

The composition of “Southern (Tunisian) Gardens” features an intricate mosaic of colored shapes and blocks that appear to float against a muted background. The use of color is both harmonious and vibrant, with a rich palette that includes shades of green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Some shapes resemble natural elements, perhaps hinting at vegetation and the organic nature of a garden. The layout is non-representational, inviting viewers to interpret the space and forms according to their own imagination. This work is characteristic of Klee’s explorations of color theory and his innovative approach to form, which often flirted with the boundary between abstraction and reality.
