The Grey of the Night Suddenly Appears

paul-klee_Zentrum When I was a teenager, first getting interested in art, I was fascinated with Paul Klee’s work. I think it’s because I saw color differently then, and his colors were always saturated, and he often juxtaposed blocks of color so that even greys might seem vibrant. His paintings have a childlike sense of wonder and freedom of line. This is a photo of Klee that I’d never seen before; he looks so different from the monkish looking fellow of his later photographs.
