Paul Klee | Tale a la Hoffmann, 1921 | Klee loved the tales of the German poet and writer E. T. A. Hoffmann (1776–1822), who was nicknamed "Ghost Hoffmann" in his own country. Tale à la Hoffmann appears to be loosely based on the poet's best-known lyrical tale, The Golden Pot (1814), a magical story that switches back and forth between high fantasy and everyday life in Dresden.
City of Lagoons. Paul Klee, 1932. / Such beauty. I really enjoy this piece because at the top it's looking like skateboard wood with all the colours and texture but as you go down it turns into this zig zag mess over top, almost appearing three dimensional.
