In his early years, Paul Klee meticulously examined his environment through drawing. Understanding the movement, pace and processes of growth of nature subsequently laid the foundations for his theory of pictorial composition.
But Klee also asserted that the dialogue with nature was not solely established by optical means. Rather, he stated: 'the artist of today is more than an improved camera [...]. He is a creature on the Earth and a creature within the whole, that is to say, a creature on a star among stars.' An artist must therefore paint in a state capable of perceiving that dual condition.
'Paul Klee, The Senses and Nature' is a multisensorial tour that introduces visitors to the artist's work through the senses: we will read texts written by him, listen to music he loved and played, explore natural elements through the senses and glide our fingertips over several reproductions of his drawings.
