The Angels of Paul Klee

Angels of Paul Klee, The

Translated by 

Paul Klee painted angels for his entire life and here the author Boris Friedewald describes their creation and their meaning in Klee's: from the Christ child Paul Klee painted at the age of five, through cheerful and witty angels such as the Forgetful Angel up to the famous Angelus Novus who accompanied Walter Benjamin into exile and the Doubting Angel Paul Klee drew the year he died. Boris Friedewald's stimulating and easy to read text introduces us to the meaning of angels in Paul Klee's oeuvre and to the artist's biography. A wonderful book to give away or read on your own every now and then.
