Summary This book illustrates how Paul Klees critical and ironic take on life was evident in every stage of his career. It argues that Klees style emerged from a philosophical school that originated with early German Romanticism and consisted of perpetual shifts between satire and affirmation of the absolute, finite and infinite, and real and ideal.
