Paul Klee is one of my favorites, too, Rap...

When I was born my mom bought a Klee print, put it in my nursery and it's been with me all my life... It is two abstract clowns... I've always known they were clowns but learned a few yea5rs ago that my mom can't see them for what they are???

Klee's story, however, is a sad one... He was a Jewish art professor in the 30s in Germany and as all Jews was removed from a job that he loved... I might have the dates slightly off but I think he was removed in '37 and died (from illness) in '39... I believe my print is from '38...
