Paul Klee: Making Visible (Oct 16 – Mar 9, 2014) at Tate Modern is a major retrospective of the early 20-centry master of European modernism, Paul Klee, and one of the London’s must-see exhibitions this fall&winter. Paintings, drawings and watercolours from collections around the world are displayed alongside each other as Klee originally intended, often for the first time since Klee exhibited them himself.

This 17-room exhibition traces Klee’s career chronologically, beginning in Munich during the World War I, when he joined Der Blaue Reiter founded by Franz Marc and Wassily Kandinsky and established of his unique style of abstract patchworks of colour. It follows the decade of teaching and working at the Bauhaus, and his prolific final years in the 1930s in Bern, after he was dismissed from his teaching position by the Nazis and took refuge in Switzerland, as his works were labelled ‘degenerate art’ in Germany.

Most of his works are small in size, but on the opposite to its size, those are filled with rich colors and lots of imagination. Intriguing.
