To this very day, the work of Paul Klee (1879–1940) continues to fascinate a broad audience: balanced between the representational and the abstract, his art combines elements of visible reality and surreal, poetic ideas to produce what are frequently mysterious images. There is also a pictorial architecture that involves elementary geometrical shapes and compositional considerations, never losing sight, however, of the poetry within the image. Klee influenced scores of artists, including later generations, primarily in his position as an instructor at the Bauhaus, but also through his art theory.This volume, which contains contributions by renowned experts on Klee, embraces the artist’s entire oeuvre. It focuses on his drawings, watercolors, gouaches, and prints dating from his early period to his highly creative later years. The works stem from museums and collections around the world, in particular from the outstanding collection of Professor Carl Djerassi, a significant portion of which will be endowed to the Albertina.  Exhibition schedule: Albertina, Vienna, May 9–August 10, 2008
