Ad Parnassum

1932; 39 x 50 in

This painting is considered Klee's masterpiece: it is where his sense of spatial and geometries and his color skills connect. S
mall blocks of shifting colors float through the background, set in place with a thick black outline, evincing the idea of a building or a house. He liked to build his paintings around themes that encompassed many different movements or ideas, for example the image in this painting might represent Apollo's palace, the pyramids that Klee saw, and a mountain near his house. 

Concepts that are important in Klee's works:

-color and tone

-light vs dark (where you look, what falls into the shadows)

-polychromatic and monochromatic

-warm vs cold colors

-calming effect

-geometric shapes
