Paul Klee paintings offer a skillful approach to colour and this was the main skill of the artist, who went to the extreme lengths of researching and publishing papers on the theory of colour. Several of his abstract works rely almost entirely on his colour selections and these are amongst his most popular paintings. The nature of abstract art means that will little detail there is a huge importance laid in the use of colour combinations.

Paul Klee was an incredibly proilific artist who created over 10,000 art works over his 40-year career, which is more than almost any other artist in history. Amongst his media were the oil paintings as mentioned here, plus also large numbers of drawings and etchings which have also since attracted interest for those looking into his career in more detail than they had previously done. Paul Klee received his training from the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich and went onto to feature in the art movements of Expressionism, Bauhaus and Surrealism.

Castle and Sun is a charming Paul Klee painting that creatives depicts a cartoon like castle with sun sitting above in a truly abstract matrix of coloured squares which at first makes it unclear as to quite what it is of. As you consider the title of the painting, it quickly becomes clear and further details of the castle become apparent after each and every viewing, making this a very intriguing painting. The bright colours used have also ensured it to be a popular choice as reproduction.

Paul Klee was heavily involved in the teaching and study of the theory behind art which can be seen in several important stages of his career. Firstly, he created the Paul Klee notebooks which outlined his findings within his heavy experimentation with colour which was a primary interest of his. Paul Klee eventually joined forces with fellow art theorist Wassily Kandinsky and the two went onto teach at the German Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture.

Landschaft mit Gelben Vogeln is an unusual work for Paul Klee and reminds many of the work of French artist Rousseau with a similarlity to his cartoon-like jungle paintings. Paul Klee experimented with many styles of modern art in his career but from the 10,000 artworks that he produced, very few, even in the early days of his career, bear any similarity to more tradtional styles of art which clearly had never significantly interested him.

Paul Klee's modern art has become increasingly popular as his reputation has spread across Europe and beyond thanks to the connections that he had with other significant artists as well as the greater frequency of exhibiting of his paintings in new areas that had not received much of his work. The rise of art within the modern media has also helped to promote artists into new

Within Fish Magic there is a relaxing scene that actually reflects a real deep sea scene and the artist carefully offers a wide array of different oranges, reds, greens and blues to cover the beautiful different fishes and plants found in the painting.

Senecio, below, is another highly abstract work with some similarity to the cubist movement which included the likes of Pablo Picasso. Senecio features the head of an old man in another bright piece that relies on oranges and reds to deliver a warm painting, which has become on of the artist's most popular in recent years with many choosing as a reproduction fo their own homes, probably because of the positive outlook that comes from such warm colours.
