His greatest inspiration and ally was Kandinsky, the godfather of Abstraction, as well as his Munich based artist friends Macke, Marc and Jawlensky. When Klee discovered Picasso’s compositions he started painting the fractured perspective and prismatic forms of the earliest Cubism. He also admired other contemporary movements: Orphism, invented by Robert Delaunay with his lyrical patterns and transcendent colour palette, the Futurism with their unprecedented sense of speed introduced, Dadaism with their strange machine automations and the pure forms of Constructivism and Suprematism from the Bauhaus School. Klee indelibly changed the course of Modern Art and influenced many generations of artists. His interest in the subconscious and those deemed insane resonate with today’s fascination with art created by those outside the establishment, including disabled people and practitioners of occult traditions.
