Paul Klee and Italy

9 Oct - 27 Feb.

"Paul Klee and Italy" comprises about 100 works – both by Klee and other Italian and foreign artists such as Kandinsky, Moholy Nagy, Max Bill, Albers, Licini, Soldati, Perilli and Novelli – and examines the influence of Italian culture and landscapes on the artist's work.

Critics have long identified trips to Tunis and Egypt as being significant to the career of the Swiss-German artist; this show highlights the effect that his six Italian visits had on Klee who spent time in Rome, Florence, Naples and Sicily.

The exhibition focuses on four key elements of Italy that inspired him: nature, architecture, classicism and music.
