Gosh darn it, MOMA, if this isn’t the most glorious description of a cat I’ve ever heard.
Paul Klee’s Cat and Bird use the elements of art for “their own sake,” meaning Klee didn’t really care about the image as much as its process. Here in particular, you can see his emphasis on color, line, and shape and how they create composite shape of a bird within the cat’s mind.
Also, like, how fabulous is Klee’s desire to make “secret visions visible”?! Seriously?! I HEAR THAT…especially when it comes to the overflowing cart I have on both Boden and J.Crew right now.
