Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a Swiss/German painter who resorted to a very individual and inventive way to express himself with each individual picture he created. One could say he had his own private vocabulary to explain his creativity. His figures are wire-like shapes, and there is a playfulness element to his paintings especially in his later years.

He explored widely different theories about color in his writings, later translated as Paul Klee Notebooks.

Klee suffered from a rare skin disease called scleroderma for many decades until his death in 1940 in Switzerland.
