I've always appreciated the artists of the 'Blaue Reiter' group,
especially Franz Marc and Kandinsky. Paul Klee was also a member
however for me, his work is too 'Expressionistic'. Yet he's still
an interesting artist of the era.

This introductory style book consists of basic info on Klee; a
several page biography and then a collection of plates.
However only a title is provided for the plates - no history,
interpretation, not even a date (though on some Klee
provided that on the painting).

Coincidentally just visited the Dallas Museum of Art 10/06/2011
and they had a Klee. Looked like a painting of a place mat, but
still interesting experience.
