Paul Klee - Senecio 1922 Paul Klee was born on December 18, 1879, in Munchenbuchsee, Switzerland. Also a talented violinist Klee studied drawing and painting in Munich for three years (1898–1901). In 1911 he became involved with the German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), founded by Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc. His work was influenced by the Cubism of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, and the abstract translucent color planes of Robert Delaunay.
Gorgeous Paul Klee portraits. These are my favorite of all that I have seen! Art teacher Anne Farrell had 1st graders go over their drawings with orange paint and a roller before coloring with soft pastels. Beautiful effect!
