Fascination with children’s ability to express themselves in pictures is a recurrent theme in the work of the Swiss artist Paul Klee (1879-1940), one of the great classic figures of 20th-century art. Several decades later, this same ability to dip into the pictorial world of children – with a new historical background – became a source of new artistic and political directions for the artists’ group Cobra (1948-51). The Louisiana's KLEE & COBRA exhibition brings together the artist and the movement in an interesting, fertile - indeed surprising - encounter which opens doors to Klee's world with around 120 works and teaches us to see Cobra - Corneille, Appel, Jorn and others - in a new way with around 100 works by these artists.
