Paul Klee - 'Inventions'

Paul's work during his Weimar period often depicted the serene, light-hearted side of his nature. The title 'Inventions' was given to these drawings, which are often purely of a graphic quality.

The twittering machine, 1922.

The invention of its themes and figures always start from an idea of a technical or compositive kind: from elements that produce forms.

This is the one i used for my inspiration / interpretation and I think it is called 'The tight-rope walker'.  Sorry everyone, hope this gives some info behind my piece.


  1. Having seen many of these images now from that period of Klee's work, I really admire your "take" on the "Inventions" series. Well done!

  2. I like your piece even more now having seen the inspiration.
