Klee in North Africa 1914, Tunisia | Egypt, 1928

  • through June 1, 2020
  • Museum Berggruen, Berlin
Twice in his life, Paul Klee, who passed away in 1940, was drawn to North Africa for study, joining a long tradition of journeys by European artists to region. The beginning of his art career took him to Tunisia, and later, as an established artist and teacher at the Bauhaus, he traveled to Egypt. The exhibit is a dedication to Klee's works in the Nationalgalerie Collection, whose origins are connected with his travels to North Africa.
