This paper focuses on the role of color in Klee's compositions and discusses how color defined his characteristic enigmatic mode of expression, and helped him to oscillate between the realms of the conscious and the unconscious that he wanted to portray. The paper shows how be it mosaics, or line drawings, color made his ideas and thoughts, hopes and dreams manifest in the true sense of the term.

From the Paper:

"One of the prime forces to reckon with in the field of modern art is Swiss-born artist Paul Klee (1879-1940), billed by many as a philosopher, a dreamer, an abstracter, and above all, an artist par excellence. Although some of his works have been adjudged as grotesque and uncanny, undoubtedly he set forth a style that has been a legacy for contemporary artists.
"Klee's artistic career, which includes more than 9,000 critically-acclaimed paintings that have been exhibited the world over, is characterized by a graduation from line drawings to a passionate and vibrant love of color which began in 1914. Almost all of his creations, in his mature years as a painter, have featured the predominant use of colors and lines."
