Mit besonderen Köpfen

Paul Klee (in 1938)

Paul Klee’s poetic drawings and watercolours show a highly personal world. His works, some of which resemble children’s drawings, are usually composed of fine lines and transparent colours. This work, which he made at the end of his life, has a thicker layer of paint. Klee has used a self-made distemper to paint two (or three?) figures ‘with peculiar heads’.
