Paul Klee

After church in Bern two Sundays ago, we went to visit the Paul Klee Zentrum.
Nach der Kirche vorletzten Sonntag in Bern haben wir uns das Paul Klee Zentrum angeschaut.

You were not allowed to take pictures, so I can't give you any impressions from the inside.  The outside architecture is imitating the hilly landscape around the Zentrum Paul Klee.  Here is a good children's book on Klee.  I have always liked Paul Klee very much.  The current exhibition explores Klee's inspiration by the artists Daumier, Ensor, Feininger und Kubin.

Paul Klee for Children


Man konnte drinnen nicht fotografieren, deshalb kann ich hier nur einige Fotos von außen bieten.  Die Architektur des Gebäudes soll die Landschaft drumherum imitieren.  Hier ist ein gutes Kinderbuch über Paul Klee.  Mir gefällt Klees Kunst sehr.  Im Moment kann man etwas über die Einflüsse der Künstler Daumier, Ensor, Feininger und Kubin auf Klees Kunst lernen.

Afterwards we took a look at the Bernese bears.
Anschließend mußten wir natürlich noch die Berner Bären sehen.

  3. Deine Blogbeiträge aus der Schweiz öffnen einem doch wieder die Augen für das eigene Land! Wir befassen uns auch gerade wieder mit CH-Geschichte. So werden also bald auch einige CH-Fotos auf unserem Blog zu finden sein.

    2. Ich habe unsere Pilatus Fotos auf den Blog geladen. Vielleicht bekommt Ihr jetzt Lust, auch so eine Tour zu wagen.

    3. Der Gotthard ist schon geplant - schon lange. Aber wenn wir diesen Sommer noch Zeit haben, wäre der Pilatus auf jeden Fall auch sehr schön. Mal gucken - auch wie sich das Wetter entwickelt.

  4. Hello Eva, Bern is beautiful, and so are the bears! Were they sleeping? Playing? The girls remember me taking them to see the pandas in DC many years ago at the National Zoo. You must also be enjoying church! It's uplifting to worship in such lovely buildings. And how exciting for all of you to visit the Klee Zentrum. I should focus on his work with M and C. They would like it.

    I went on my first trip cross country with my parents when I was six years old. They took me out of school early to drive across. We saw so many wonderful places: Carlsbad Caverns, Yellowstone, Death Valley, the Badlands . . a bottle house in a ghost town! It made a big impression on me. I like to say that they homeschooled me! I feel I learned more on those trips cross country with them than I ever learned in school. The experiences your children are having now are very special. Even for little Flora. Maybe especially for little Flora!!!

    Enjoy! Enjoy! It's good you are gone for so long. Home will feel delightfully . . homey!

    1. Yes, it was very hot and they were sleeping. The bear is on the Bernese flag and has played an important role for the city.

      The catholic church in Switzerland is very different from the catholic church elsewhere. You can definetely feel the influence of the Reformation. It felt as if the catholic church didn't know how to be catholic anymore. Very interesting to witness.

      Klee is a great artist to talk about and to try to imitate. There are so many good books on him, many have been written for children. There must be some good paintings by him in NYC.

      Impressive, what you remember from your cross-country trip. So I do hope that even Flora will remember something.

      Stay cool!
