Teaser: Klee in North Africa


Twice in his life, Paul Klee (1879 – 1940) was drawn to North Africa for study purposes, joining a long tradition of artists’ journeys to the “Orient”. The beginning of his art career took him to Tunisia, and as an established artist and teacher at the Bauhaus he travelled to Egypt. The Museum Berggruen is dedicating a concentrated special presentation to Klee’s works in the Nationalgalerie Collection whose origins are connected with his travels to North Africa. These works are complemented by five generous loans from the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf.
