Paul Klee
(Paul Klee, Will Grohmann )
This colorful monograph features and surveys the 150 best-known works of Paul Klee, an artist famous for the playful complexity of his multi-media images.

Paul Klee: His Life and Work
(Carolyn Lanchner (Editor), Jurgen Glaesemer (Editor), Ann Temkin, Valerio Olgiati, Edelbert Kob, Tibor Joanelly )
Fitting Paul Klee's extraordinary oeuvre into book form is certainly a complex endeavor--Klee's diverse body of work is always opening itself up to new interpretations, and has escaped classification under the aegis of any particular style, group, or movement. This monograph achieves this feat by offering Klee in all his uniqueness, never attempting to subject the artist and his work to one interpretation.

Paul Klee: Selected by Genius, 1917-33
(Roland Doschka (Editor), Ernst-Gerhard Guse, Christian Rumelin, Paul Klee)
Produced in close cooperation with the Klee Foundation in Bern, this catlogues gathers together the artist's outstanding masterpieces of the years 1917-1933. This extraordinary survey, which includes works which Klee originally intended to keep for himself, has been made possible by loans from the collection of Angela Rosengart in Lucerne, the Klee Foundation in Bern, and many private collectors. Many of these works are being presented to a wide audience for the first time.
