«Klee is a prince, Sunday’s child, whom we allow to play,
because his playing, pure and gifted by genius, resonates with our own
life in the gentle ‘Eiapopeia’ of the heavenly realm.» Waldemar Jollos in the periodical Das Kunstblatt, 1919
The painting «Uebermut»[High spirits] which Paul Klee created in
1939 is not only one of his best known works but within it he combined
his ideas on childish games together with the grave historical
background of the time.
