Paul Klee is at the Centre Pompidou, and it’s one of the most awaited exhibits of 2016. From April 6th to August 1st, 2016, the Centre Pompidou is bringing together 250 of Paul Klee’s pieces on the subject of romantic irony, offering a clearer view of Klee’s relationship to his contemporaries.

The Centre Georges Pompidou will be honoring Paul Klee in a never-before-seen retrospective exhibit dedicated to the romantic irony that characterizes his work. This exhibit, showing from April 6th to August 1st, 2016 gives a clearer idea of Paul Klee’s influence on the art scene in the 20th century and an introduction to romantic irony, an artistic freedom that F. Schlegel says “allows the artist to correct the subjective nature of his work with objective moments." 

Paul Klee’s exhibit is developed through seven different thematic sections:

  • Satire and character (the early years)
  • Cubism
  • Mechanical Theater (in unison with Dada and Surrealism)
  • Constructivism (The Bauhaus de Dessau years)
  • A Look in the Past (the 1930s)
  • Picasso (Klee’s reception after the Picasso retrospective in Zurich in 1932)
  • The Crisis Years (between Nazi politics, war, and sickness)

To include these seven themes, the Centre Pompidou was lucky enough to exceptionally borrow from the largest international collections and from the Zentrum Paul Klee. There are 250 diverse works, paintings, sketches, sculptures and most importantly, the legendary Angelus Novus, never before shown in France!
