Image size: 13.75 inches x 20.5 inches. Klee painted the original of Musique Diurne (Day Music) in 1940, shortly before his death. This silkscreen was printed in 1953, in a limited edition of 300 prints, in Paris, by Wilfredo Arcay and was issued in the folio Edition Art D'Aujourd'hui: Maitres de L'Art Abstrait (Art of Today: Masters of Abstract Art) Album I (Boulogne), as number 8 of 16 screenprints. This print is signed in the plate in the upper right corner. Condition: very good, an untrimmed sheet, with tack holes in the corners.

Offered in new museum standard framing. Paul Klee was a Swiss-born painter, printmaker and musician, who had German nationality. He saw analogies between music and the visual arts: such as comparing the visual rhythm in drawing to percussive rhythms in a musical composition. He is considered to be one of the most important masters of Modern Art.|
