"From his satirical beginnings to the years of crisis, as well as in his reaction to Cubism, his fertile interaction with Dada and his challenging of the dogmas of the Bauhaus, Paul Klee constantly asserted his absolute freedom from the modernist movements of his time, making use of irony to question their principles and disrupt their systems. This retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, bringing together some of Paul Klee's greatest masterpieces, is the first time that his entire oeuvre has been reconsidered through the prism of Romantic ironty. Featuring contributions by leading Klee specialists, this lavishly illustrated catalogue explores the subversive aspect of the artist's work."
