The exhibition Paul Klee. Alle origini dell’arte (Paul Klee. At the Origins of Art) will be hosted by the MUDEC in Milan from 31 October 2018. It features a wide selection of Klee's works on the theme of “primitivism” and offers an original reassessment of this concept. Klee is a great connoisseur of the history of Western art in all its breadth and variety, and in his work he re-elaborates both Pharaonic Egypt, both eras until then considered "barbaric" or decadent, such as late-antique art, that Paleochristian and Coptic, the High Middle Ages; and finally African, oceanic and Amerindian art. The exhibition presents a hundred works by the author, coming from important European museums and private collections.
