Ohhh, so it’s pronounced ‘Paul clay’! This Klee painting wasn’t good enough to make it as a postcard in the gift shop.
I didn’t know anything about Paul Klee until the reviews came out for Tate Modern’s exhibition. On a visit at the Tate I learnt much about Klee and his work, including the correct pronunciation of his name and the fact he numbered his paintings, a process I apply to my own drawings. The piece I reproduced was from 1928 and called ‘Pictorial Architecture, Red, Yellow, Blue’, and as I sat down in front of this work, I noted the people who would stop to look it. My drawing was completed in under an hour at the exhibition, being a Saturday evening it was reasonably and pleasantly quiet.
