Take a journey through Italy through the eyes and works of contemporary artist Paul Klee

Like many contemporary artists, Swiss-born and raised in Germany, Paul Klee loved the Mediterranean, particularly Italy. In fact, the Bel Paese heavily influenced both his life and some of his most important works. Italy not only became a favourite vacation destination for the artist but also played a pivotal role in his artistic career. The artist spent a great deal of time in Italy between 1901 and 1902, using Goethe and Buckhard as inspirations for his ‘Grand Tour’ of Rome, Naples and Florence. He returned five more times throughout his life to Italy, making stops in Sicily, Milan, Genoa, Padua and other cities that served as a foundation for some of his creative works on nature, architecture and music. Over 100 pieces of art including water colours and drawings by Klee and other international artists such as Kandisky, Moholy Nagy, Max Bill and others will be on display at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna through January 27th.
