Special Exhibitions Galleries
This exhibition’s seventy-five drawings, watercolours and oils by Swiss artist Paul Klee were gifted to The Metropolitan Museum of Art by one of the postwar era’s renowned art dealers and collectors, Heinz Berggruen. The works encompass all aspects of Klee’s art, as both draughtsman and painter. This is the first Canadian exhibition in nearly four decades to be devoted to Klee and provides a full survey of his prolific career.
Organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in association with the National Gallery of Canada
