Klee: The Late Years

March 19–June 27, 2004
Exhibitions are free with Museum admission.

Exhibition Overview

This selection from The Berggruen Klee Collection focuses on the last ten years of the painter's life, 1930 to 1940. During these years, Klee taught at the Düsseldorf Academy and returned to live in his native Bern. In Klee's later pictures, which became large in scale and heavy in line, his style turned boldly decorative. The works from this period are rarely shown in this country.
