"Only abstraction of the transitory remained. The world was my subject, even though it was not the visible world. Polyphonic painting is superior to music in that, here, the time element becomes the spatial element".

(Paul Klee, On Modern Art, London & Boston, 1979, n.p.)

“Solo l’astrazione del transitorio rimase. Il mondo era il mio soggetto, anche se non era il mondo visibile. La pittura polifonica è superiore della musica in quanto, qui, l’elemento del tempo diventa l’elemento dello spazio”
