Paul Klee foi um pintor e poeta suíço naturalizado alemão. O seu estilo, grandemente individual, foi influenciado por várias tendências artísticas diferentes, incluindo o expressionismo, cubismo, e surrealismo. Ele foi um estudante do orientalismo. Klee era um desenhista nato que realizou experimentos e dominou a teoria das cores, sobre o quê ele escreveu extensivamente. Suas obras refletem seu humor seco e, às vezes, a sua perspectiva infantil, seus ânimos e suas crenças pessoais, e sua musicalidade. Ele e o pintor russo Wassily Kandinsky, seu amigo, também eram famosos por darem aulas na escola de arte e arquitetura Bauhaus.

„Nature can afford to be prodigal in everything, the artist must be frugal down to the last detail.“

— Paul Klee
Context: Nature can afford to be prodigal in everything, the artist must be frugal down to the last detail. Nature is garrulous to the point of confusion, let the artist be truly taciturn. Diary entry (Munich, 1909), # 857, in The Diaries of Paul Klee, 1898-1918; University of California Press, 1968, p. 236

„My mirror probes down to the heart.“

— Paul Klee
Context: My mirror probes down to the heart. I write words on the forehead and around the corners of the mouth. My human faces are truer than the real ones. Diary entry (Munich, 1901), # 136, in The Diaries of Paul Klee, 1898-1918; University of California Press, 1968, p. 48

„The main thing now is not to paint precociously but to be, or at least become, an individual.“

— Paul Klee
Context: The main thing now is not to paint precociously but to be, or at least become, an individual. The art of mastering life is the prerequisite for all further forms of expression, whether they are paintings, sculptures, tragedies, or musical compositions. Diary entry (3 June 1902), # 411, in The Diaries of Paul Klee, 1898-1918; University of California Press, 1968

„Things appear to assume a broader and more diversified meaning, often seemingly contradicting the rational experience of yesterday. There is a striving to emphasize the essential character of the accidental.“

— Paul Klee
Context: Formerly we used to represent things visible on earth, things we either liked to look at or would have liked to see. Today we reveal the reality that is behind visible things, thus expressing the belief that the visible world is merely an isolated case in relation to the universe and that there are many more other, latent realities. Things appear to assume a broader and more diversified meaning, often seemingly contradicting the rational experience of yesterday. There is a striving to emphasize the essential character of the accidental. Section V
