Most of his works were painted in watercolors on paper, Paul Klee's paintings are easy-to-observe compositions, characterized by childlike lines, playful titles, and bright colors. "Art does not reproduce the visible, rather, it makes visible" this famous phrase said by the painter in the 20s became the cornerstone of modern pictorial art. Klee placed great value on the authenticity of his painting, what he called "primitive culture," referring to the art typical of children and the mentally ill.

Paul Klee not only stood out as an irreverent painter but also bequeathed to the artistic community a series of philosophical reflections about his pictorial ideal "Visual art is never born from an idea or poetic desire," he explained, "By constructing one or several figures, harmonizing a few colors, or calculating spatial relationships, whether an idea joins the final result is completely irrelevant." The value of this genius of abstraction's work is evident, with the price of his works reaching around 6 million dollars.
