Paul Klee In The Style Of Kairouan (1914 )
Paul Klee’s highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. He was also a student of orientalism.
After Klee’s visit to Tunisia, where he was inspired by the quality of light, he returned home with the determination to be a painter. This led him to create The Style Of Kairouan, a composition of simple colored shapes. It is the first purely abstract painting created by Paul Klee.
