Paul Klee: One of History’s Greatest Artists

Born in the late 1800s, Paul Klee was known mainly for his whimsical and childlike styles in expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. He painted as a soldier during WWI and taught art in the famous Bauhaus alongside Wassily Kandinsky. During the Hitler regime, Klee’s artwork was actually deemed degenerate which caused him to leave Germany and move back to his hometown of Bern, Switzerland. Many of his art pieces made their way to the United States of America where they made significant impacts on up and coming American artists.
