February Masterpiece of the Month: Scenecio (Head of a Man) by Paul Klee

Who Made It?
This painting was created by a Swiss painter named, Paul Klee, in 1922.

Where is the REAL One?
The real painting can be seen at the Kunstmuseum Basel in Basel, Switzerland

Why Is It Important?
The artwork of Paul Klee was very inspiring to many artists during the 20th century and influenced many styles of art. Klee admired children’s artwork and wanted his own work to be just as expressive and without any limitations.This abstract version of the human face is divided by color into flat geometric shapes. This painting demonstrates Klee’s unique understanding of line, color, shape and space in a way that is playful, dramatic and strange all at the same time.
