Paul Klee

Data de nascimento: 18. Dezembro 1879
Data de falecimento: 29. Junho 1940

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.

„Enfatizar apenas o belo parece-me como um sistema matemático que apenas se importa com os números positivos.“

„Art does not reproduce what we see. It makes us see.“

—  Paul Klee

Section I

(de) Kunst gibt nicht das Sichtbare wieder, sondern macht sichtbar.
1916 - 1920, Creative Credo (1920)
Variante: Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible.

„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

Section V
1916 - 1920, Creative Credo (1920)
Contexto: 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.

„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.“

—  Paul Klee

1895 - 1902

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

—  Paul Klee

Diary entry (3 June 1902), # 411, in The Diaries of Paul Klee, 1898-1918; University of California Press, 1968
1895 - 1902
Contexto: 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.

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

—  Paul Klee

Diary entry (Munich, 1909), # 857, in The Diaries of Paul Klee, 1898-1918; University of California Press, 1968, p. 236
1903 - 1910
Contexto: 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.

„His [ Van Gogh's] pathos is alien to me, especially in my current phase, but he is certainly a genius. Pathetic to the point of being pathological, this endangered man can endanger one who does not see through him. Here a brain is consumed by the fire of a star. It frees itself in its work just before the catastrophe. Deepest tragedy takes place here, real tragedy, natural tragedy, exemplary tragedy. Permit me to be terrified.“

—  Paul Klee
