The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the IVAM Centre Julio González in Valencia have worked together to organise what was to be the first important retrospective exhibition in Spain of the Swiss artist Paul Klee. The project, curated by Tomàs Llorens and Emmanuel Guigon, was first presented in Valencia, and later travelled to Madrid. The exhibition brought together an extensive selection of works, which offered a complete overview of the artistic career of Paul Klee, who was considered as one of the most original and influential creators of the 20th century. This exhibition is perfectly in line with the Museum’s aim of presenting exhibitions centred on movements, artists or periods especially well represented in the Permanent Collection, thereby enriching the Spanish art scene; in fact, with a few exceptions, Spanish museums lack works by Paul Klee, whereas the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum has four masterpieces belonging to different periods and styles of his artistic career.
