Paul Klee was a Swiss painter born 1879 in Munchenbuchsee, Switzerland and died 1940 in Muralto-Locarno, Switzerland. Klee was associated with the Abstract, Surrealism and Expressionism movements. Famous paintings and artwork of this artist include Remembrance of a Garden and Dream City.

Klee grew up in a musical family and was himself a violinist. After much hesitation he chose to study art, not music, and he attended the Munich Academy in 1900. There his teacher was the popular symbolist and society painter Franz von Stuck. Klee later toured Italy (1901-02), responding enthusiastically to Early Christian and Byzantine art.
