Annoyingly you have to pay to get into this one, but if you are into his Art and want a sneaky lesson on 20th century German History, maybe it is worth the £14.50 ticket (adults £16.50).

The exhibition charts Klee’s career from his breakthrough in World War I, his dismissal by the Nazis from a teaching post in Dusseldorf in the 1930s and his eventual escape as a refugee to Switzerland.

One thought on “Paul Klee at Tate Modern offers a surprising History lesson

  1. I enjoyed looking at Paul Klee’s art probably because he is so massively famous, but really preferred all the History behind his work. This exhibition referred to all the Historical events which we’d been learning about in class: the Weimar Republic, the rise of Hitler and Kristallnacht.
