Paul Klee: The Abstract Dimension examines a previously little-explored aspect of the artist’s oeuvre. Among the nearly 10,000 works Klee created in the course of his career are some of the most pioneering and influential examples of modernist abstraction—works that continue to resonate today.

Starting in 1913, this book presents around 100 works from all periods of Klee’s career, reproducing paintings and drawings from numerous renowned institutions and private collections in Europe and overseas. The works are grouped under four themes—nature, architecture, painting, and graphic characters—that show how Klee constantly oscillated between the semi-representational and the absolute abstract.
