The Art of Paul Klee

Paul Klee's Revolution of the Viaducts

This page is part of a project to generate the works of artists from a programs that draw their image using vector graphics rather than using scanned image files. This works only for those artists whose work is structurally simple, such as the Neoplasticist works of Piet Mondrian. Paul Klee's works generally are not structurally simple but his Revolution of the Viaducts does lend itself to computer graphics. The above facimile is generated by creating subsidiary polygons that extend outside of or inside of the basic polygons for the viaducts.

There is a simple explanation for the endearing, child-like drawings of Klee. When he was a child his grandmother convinced him to draw with his left hand although he was right-handed.
