Paul Klee exhibition 2015 in Italy

He visits Sardinia for the first time. And he does it in style. The selected destination is Nuoro, known with the name “Sardinian Athens”. This is where the exhibition 2015 dedicated to Paul Klee takes place.


The exhibition

Paul Klee. Mondi animati (literally “Paul Klee. Animated worlds”): this is the title of the exhibition. It is also the common thread that unites the fifty works on display. Klee never spoke of “animism”. Yet all his work seems imbued with a vital and generative principle, in the nature of things, in the nature of reality.

The works of art on display have been selected with this criterion. The masterpieces of the German master come from some important museums, such as Locarno, Galleria nazionale d’arte moderna of Rome, Gam in Turin, Pinacoteca nazionale of Bologna.

Among the most important works of art on display, there are Feigenbaum (1929), Im park (1940), Wohin? (1920).
