When Three Painters Go on a Journey...

In April 1914 Paul Klee, August Macke and Louis Moilliet made their legendary journey to Tunisia, starting from the city of Tunis via St Germain and Sidi Bou Said to Hammamet and to the desert town of Kairouan. The study trip was very impressive: they found completely new inspirations in the culture, landscape and architecture of North Africa that influenced their works long after the trip was over.

Today, the tour of three painters is considered main cultural and historical event of the 20th century. Paul Klee had a premonition when he wrote in his diary: "The sun has a dark power. The colorful clarity on shore full of promise. Macke too feels it. We both know that we shall work well here." And that's the way it should be. In just two weeks, Klee created 35 watercolors and 13 drawings and Macke 33 watercolors and 79 drawings. The flood of impressions was even too much for Paul Klee, he went off before the other two: "The experience I had just undergone was too strong. I had to leave, also, in order to pull myself together. (...) The big hunt was over."
