Paul Klee; irony at work at the Centre Pompidou

Paul Klee; irony at work at the Centre Pompidou

Forty seven years after the last major French retrospective devoted to this major figure in modern art, which took place at the Musée d’Art Moderne in 1969, the Centre Pompidou offers a new perspective on the work of Paul Klee. Finding a unique way of presenting this elusive 20th century artist, the creator of nearly ten thousand works, is a challenge, as he seems to elude attempts at classification. This new exhibition examines his oeuvre through the prism of romantic irony, satire and parody. Klee's work may be understood as a game signalling the attempt to say the unsayable, despite the impossibility of doing so, while subtly denouncing the dogma of his contemporaries. Organised around seven themes, the exhibition brings together some 250 paintings, sculptures and drawings, half of which have not previously been shown in France. Among the most outstanding works are two legendary watercolours from the collection of Walter Benjamin.
