Klee & Kandinsky: Neighbors, Friends, Rivals

By Vivian Endicott Barnett, Michael Baumgartner, Annegret Hoberg, and Christing Hopfengart

Klee and Kandinsky were two of the most formative figures in twentieth-century art and were close, both as friends and as artists. For a time they were next-door neighbors and exchanged their artistic ideas on a daily basis. Klee & Kandinsky: Neighbors, Friends, Rivals explores their thirty-year relationship, from the time of Der Blauer Reiter around 1912 to the Bauhaus years in Weimar and Dessau until the late thirties. This unique book demonstrates that their relationship was characterized in equal measure by friendship and competitiveness, by mutual influence and the need to establish distance. This beautifully illustrated volume with informative texts focuses on the artistic dialogue that they engaged in through their art.
