Today is the #birthday of Swiss-German painter, Paul Klee. The expressionist artist and #Bauhaus professor would turn 136 years old if he were still magically alive.
Born in Switzerland in 1879, Klee began his artistic career in Munich, studying under the likes of Heinrich Knirr and Franz von Stuck. After finishing school, the young artist set his sights on traveling throughout Europe and Italy, finally settling in Bern, Switzerland in 1902. Moving back and forth between Bern and Munich, he exhibited his first satirical etchings and early modern work at three significant locations — the Munich Secession in 1906, the Kunstmuseum Bern in 1910, and Munich’s Modern Galerie in 1911.
