Klee's angels at the Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern
Angels are a recurring subject in Paul Klee's work: however, they do not only appear as supernatural beings, but also show human traits and flaws. Klee's protagonists, who belong to an intermediate world, can appear just as enchanting and childlike as they do devilish. Forgetful and less handsome angels make them endearing figures that are close to human beings.
Klee's reinterpretations of the multifaceted angel motif are now at the centre of the presentation "Kosmos Klee. The Collection", which is being shown at the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern. Around 80 works from the collection provide a profound insight into Klee's artistic oeuvre, complemented by photographs and changing archive material.
