Paul Klee, Sinbad the Sailor, 1928.

Born in Switzerland, Klee studied and worked as an etcher in Munich before joining the Blaue Reiter group in 1911. From 1920 to 1933, Klee taught at the Bauhaus and explored expressionism, cubism, and realism through his paintings that were often derived from folk and children’s art. Klee was condemned as a degenerate by the Nazis in 1933, and subsequently returned to Switzerland where he died in 1940.
