Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Mark Tobey—and Paul Klee? Klee goes USA! 10 Americans is the first exhibition in the world to show how Paul Klee’s work inspired American artists and helped to shape the development of American art from 1930 until 1960.

The exhibition in the Zentrum Paul Klee concentrates on ten selected American artists. On the one hand they are artists who personally expressed their admiration for Paul Klee’s work. On the other, artists who had learned via third parties about Klee’s artistic practice and creative thinking, and drawn inspiration from it.

Apart from works by Paul Klee, works by William Baziotes, Gene Davis, Adolph Gottlieb, Norman Lewis, Robert Motherwell, Kenneth Noland, Jackson Pollock, Mark Tobey, Bradley Walker Tomlin and Theodoros Stamos are represented.

The exhibition has been organised in cooperation with the Phillips Collection, Washington D.C., and be shown there from February 3 until May 6, 2018.

A catalogue, in German and English, is being published by Prestel Verlag to coincide with the exhibition.
