Paul Klee was a Swiss painter of German nationality. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. He was also a student of orientalism. He was a natural draftsman who experimented with, and eventually mastered, color theory, which he later wrote about extensively. His works reflect his dry humor and sometimes child-like perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, and musicality. He and his friend, the Russian painter Vasily Kandinsky, both taught at the German Bauhaus school of art and architecture.
