Those of you who love art will truly enjoy the current exhibit at the Phillips Gallery in Washington, DC. Klee and America is bound to stir the emotions, especially given that Klee never visited America, yet his work truly influenced America. The timing for the exhibit nicely coincides with the attention Gustav Klimt, another German painted has received lately.
The change in Klee's style intrigued me as I passed from one section to another, but I found the very last section the most appealing.
Take an hour or more and head to the Phillips Gallery before September 10th, when the exhibit ends. To visit the website, click here:
