A kind of cat Paul Klee

A kind of cat, Eine Art Katze. Artist: Paul Klee. December 18, 1879 –  June 29, 1940) was born in Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland, and is considered both a German and a Swiss painter. Completion Date: 1937. Style: Expressionism. Period: Late Works/ Genre: animal painting. Dimensions: 21 x 26.7 cm.

Klee has been variously associated with Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism, and Abstraction, but his pictures are difficult to classify. He generally worked in isolation from his peers, and interpreted new art trends in his own way. He was inventive in his methods and technique. Klee worked in many different media—oil paint, watercolor, ink, pastel, etching, and others. He often combined them into one work. He used canvas, burlap, muslin, linen, gauze, cardboard, metal foils, fabric, wallpaper, and newsprint. Klee employed spray paint, knife application, stamping, glazing, and impasto, and mixed media such as oil with watercolor, water color with pen and India ink, and oil with tempera.
