SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- From August 7, 2010,
through
January 16, 2011, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will showcase
the
exhibition Prints by Paul Klee (1946). Organized by John Zarobell,
SFMOMA
assistant curator, collections, exhibitions, and commissions, the
exhibition
features 21 works. SFMOMA has had a longstanding commitment to the art
of Paul
Klee over its 75-year history. This exhibition re-creates a show of
prints by
the Swiss-born modernist held at the museum in 1946. At that time,
Klee’s work
was little known outside of Europe; the exhibition was perceived as
highly
original, and the works seem no less fresh or innovative more than six
decades
later.
