"Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible," wrote Paul Klee in his famous "Creative Credo" of 1920. Klee looked to the art of both children and the mentally ill as exemplifying this visionary power. This selection of works on paper examines Klee's interest in the playfulness, ornamentation, and compulsive patterning characteristic of the art of the innocent and the insane. Part of an ongoing presentation within Matisse and Beyond, the exhibition is drawn from Dr. Carl Djerassi's extraordinary collection of more than 150 pieces by Klee.
