Nicholas Fox-Weber writes about Paul Klee's influence as a teacher at the Bauhaus, on the occasion of the exhibition Paul Klee: Making Visible at Tate Modern, on view through March 9, 2014.
Fox-Weber cites impressions of Klee by a number of collectors and artists including Anni Albers who "considered [Klee] to be unparalleled in his genius, in his ability to combine the abstract and geometric with the natural and organic." Fox-Weber continues: "Klee was neither especially large nor strong, but he was someone to whom mysterious, other-world experiences occurred, and he was possessed of exceptional force. Besides, rivers and precipitous jumps in scale and mystical events were all part of the personal universe he richly inhabited... This is how Klee was to everybody: openly fearful, yet infallibly intrepid. He was always on an adventure."
