Paul Klee at SFMOMA

Paul Klee (1879-1940) has long been revered as one of the most original and inventive modern artists. Born in Switzerland, Klee made his name in Germany, where he was associated with the Blaue Reiter group and became an influential instructor at the Bauhaus before being denounced as a "degenerate" artist by the Nazis. This exhibition presents a diverse array of works made between the two World Wars, primarily from the Djerassi Collection.
