Klee and Jawlensky - An Artist’s Friendship

From Japonism to Zen. Paul Klee and the Far East

Paul Klee’s engagement with the art of the Far East, which inspired him throughout the whole of his life, has gone relatively unexamined until now. The exhibition is attempting for the first time to give an overview of Klee’s preoccupation with East Asian art.
