| A comparison of the two artists, using major works as examples
Paul Klee and Pablo Picasso are considered the great antipodes of modern art: one, romantic and spiritual; the other, Mediterranean and worldly. Klee’s poetry, as well as his liking for satire and irony, can be contrasted with Picasso’s drama, sensuality, and emotion. As different as they were, however, they were contemporaries and participated in the same artistic and historical events of their time. Picasso had the more thunderous nature, which fascinated everyone, challenging people to agree with or contradict him. Klee was also impressed by the “Spaniard,” and his artistic dialogue with Picasso reveals a broad spectrum of human reactions: secret admiration and critical distance, appropriation and independence. This is the first publication to deal with the complex relationship between the two artists, who are compared and contrasted on the basis of a number of their most prestigious works.
