Publicidade

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.

Citações Paul Klee

„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

„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

„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

„First of all, the art of living; then as my ideal profession, poetry and philosophy, and as my real profession, plastic arts; in the last resort, for lack of income, illustrations.“

— Paul Klee
Quote of Klee (Munich, c. 1910); as cited by Gualtieri Di San Lazzaro, Klee, Praeger, New York, 1957, p. 16 Klee was married, had a young son then and did the housework, living in an suburb of Munich

„Beyond the constructive elements of the picture, I studied the tonalities of nature by adding layer upon layer of diluted black watercolour paint. Each layer must dry well. In this way a mathematically correct scale of light and dark values is the result. Squinting facilitates our perception of this phenomenon in nature.“

— Paul Klee
Quote (1908), # 840, in The Diaries of Paul Klee; University of California Press, 1964; as quoted by Francesco Mazzaferro, in 'The Diaries of Paul Klee - Part Three' [http://letteraturaartistica.blogspot.nl/2015/05/paul-klee-ev.html : Klee as a Secessionist and a Neo-Impressionist Artist]

„The conviction that painting is the right profession grows stronger and stronger in me. Writing is the only other thing I still feel attracted to. Perhaps when I am mature I shall go back to it.“

— Paul Klee
Quote (1899), # 93, in The Diaries of Paul Klee, translation: Pierre B. Schneider, R. Y. Zachary and Max Knight; publisher, University of California Press, 1964
