Paul Klee: Painting "Gladioluses -Still Life" (1932), Framed 

Nature as a shape, the shape as the nature: in the time rich in genres Klee belongs to the solitaries which don't let themselves be subordinated to any of the prevailing genres. And when he uses the notion abstract, he does this in his own definition: "To be abstract in art means abstraction from the natural objective comparisons, and relies on dissolving pictorially clear connections". At the same time he insists on going from the nature, on belonging to some "Ressurection of the nature in picture" in his concept of art and forms. His painitng "Gladioluses - Still Life" is an illustration of this creative process. The high-quality fine-art giclee museum reproduction in 7 pigment colors on the real handmade watercolor paper. Solid wood frame in matte silver, with a bevelled mat, glazed. Limited edition of 499 copies, numbered on the back-side. Format framed ca. 58 x 48 cm (H/W).

He was called only "the unique" by his fellow artists: Paul Klee (1879-1940) shaped the understanding of modern art like no other. With its mosaic composed works, he created a completely new style.

The German - Swiss Klee, who was born in 1879 in Bern as a twofold talent turned out early: his drawing skills, but also his violin promised both a musical, as well as an artistic career. Klee chose the art and went to the Munich Art Academy, where he studied among other things with Franz von Stuck. But less than a vast academic study with friends who are artists who went on a study trip to Italy helped him to develop an independent style. Profound symbolic representations are full of humour and his trademark humour. There are mostly only small sizes, often only drawings, which enchant the viewer.

In 1906 he married the pianist Lily Stumpf Klee and they have a son, Felix. The young family lived a very secluded life in Munich. Only over the signatory Alfred Kubin Klee is familiar with the circuit of the "Blue Rider". Quick includes Klee and Kandinsky and Marc friendship which it combines the belief that artistic creation mentally-spiritual in nature.

A trip to the North African Tunis in 1914 with his painter friends, August Macke and Louis Moilliet helps clover of new joy of colour and a rush of creation. "The colour is me. I don't have to hunt for it. It took me forever, I know that. This is the happy hour sense: the colour and I are one. I am painter. “He notes in his diary. Innumerable watercolours, which he followed his him alone own style developed.

Exhibitions of the Blaue Reiter introduced Klee. When he was appointed to the "master" at the Bauhaus, he was already a celebrated artist. The Nazi campaign against "degenerate art" causes that he had to leave Germany in 1933 and settled again in the Switzerland. With true work rage he dabbles against an incurable disease to rebel, who only a few years later defeated the now internationally famous painter (1940).

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.
