Description

Paul Klee at Play highlights the Swiss modernist’s lifelong exploration of the creative and transformative possibilities of play. This focused exhibition, part of an ongoing series dedicated to the artist’s work, includes a selection of the whimsical hand puppets Klee made for his son, Felix, fashioned from scraps of cloth, papier-mâché, and found objects. These puppets, shown alongside prints, drawings, and paintings, illuminate central themes in Klee’s work, including his delight in play, inspiration from children’s creativity, and love of theater.
