"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
Klee=Play. And while I thinkit's delightful and satisfying to play with art as he did, and I'm sure he had a lot of fun doing his stuff, I've got to say I'd be bored to death if I was trapped in a museum of only his work....It suupose itfeels like he limited his scope so much, just don't get a breadth of vision or vitality in what I've seen of his work. Perhaps it's the problem of 20th century alienation, loss of confidence in the ascribed importance and meaning which so reduced his reach? Does he grab you? Do you find his work compelling?
I agree with your thoughts on Klee's limited scope and while I enjoy Klee, I find Kandinsky much more compelling.
Now see, I love Klee and could easily spend a day in a museum of his work.
"Entartete Kunst" is the German term for degenerated art. They even organized an exhibition for it in 1937.
The Irony about the Entarte Kunst exhibit is that it has been hailed as the most complete Modern Art exhibit ever. In other words, if an artist was not included chances are they are now forgotten.
