Paul Klee

January 11, 1960 - January 30, 1960

An exhibition of works by Paul Klee, Swiss-German pioneer of modern art, will continue throughout the month of January. Watercolors and drawings in pencil, pen, brush, and crayon are included. There are also several oil paintings and pastels. Klee, whose work is recognized as among the most important contributions to art of the 20th century, has been represented in museums and private collections throughout the world. The Colby exhibit contains numerous paintings displaying the unique talent which once led a critic to describe Klee’s outlook as “a blend of realism and fantasy.” His tremendous influence on contemporary painters can also be easily detected in these examples.
