Description

A women's silk kimono with abstracted figural designs.

  • While artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) found his greatest influences on trips to North Africa and southern Europe, and in fellow painter Cezanne, his resulting skills as a supreme colorist, use of architectural details and his own symbolism made him a far-reaching influence on 20th-century modernism.
  • This unusual kimono captures the humor and fantasy of some of Paul Klee’s work, if not the movement and grace of The Twittering Machine from 1922, pictured here.
