There is something about the art of Paul Klee that is positively ingratiating. We find ourselves smiling at an image, laughing at the accompanying title, giddy with the overall effect. A Child's Game conveys the delight of a young girl running through a garden with a goose. Genie Serving a Light Breakfast is a humorous ditty revealing Klee's idiosyncratic world of fantasy. Dance, You Monster, To My Soft Song! conveys the absurdity of a tiny pianist trying to direct an enormous floating balloon man. And in The Creator, the artist's playfulness even extends to how he imagines the Godhead — hovering in the pink cosmos with arms spread and garments flowing as if in a dance.
