In 1950, Giselher Klebe performed his orchestral work Die Zwitschermaschine with the subtitle Metamorphosen über das Bild von Paul Klee at the Donaueschinger Musiktage. One of the great misunderstandings regarding modern spirituality is that to achieve it requires many things: readings, food, exercise, travel, groups and techniques. Bach and Mozart were for him the greatest composers; he most enjoyed playing the works by the latter.

Another aspect of his legacy, and one demonstrating his multi-faceted presence in the modern artistic imagination, is his appeal for those interested in the history of the algorithm as exemplified by Homage to Paul Klee by computer art pioneer Frieder Nake. Since 1995, the "Paul Klee-Archiv" (Paul Klee archive) of the University of Jena houses an extensive collection of works by Klee.This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. Given that his friends August Macke, who he'd traveled to Tunis with not long before, and Franz Marc, both painters participating in the Blue Rider movement, were killed in action, maybe he felt some obligation to participate. Novelist and Klee's friend Wilhelm Hausenstein wrote in his work Über Expressionismus in der Malerei (On Expressionism in Painting), "Maybe Klee's attitude is in general understandable for musical people—how Klee is one of the most delightsome violinist playing Bach and Händel, who ever walked on earth.

With his characteristic dry wit, he wrote, "After all, it's rather difficult to achieve the exact minimum, and it involves risks. Paul Klee was endowed with a rich and many-sided personality that was continually spilling over into forms of expression other than his painting and that made him one of the most. His varied color palettes, some with bright colors and others somber, perhaps reflected his alternating moods of optimism and pessimism.Many of his works and their titles reflect his dry humor and varying moods; some express political convictions. Others include the American composer David Diamond in 1958, with the four-part Opus Welt von Paul Klee (World of Paul Klee).

He was a natural draftsman, and through long experimentation developed a mastery of color and tonality. During the war he began to experience long-desired success in the art world, and he found time away from his office duties to go out and paint in the landscape.

He was so talented on violin that, aged 11, he received an invitation to play as an extraordinary member of the Bern Music Association. All pages of text are present, but they may include extensive notes and highlighting or be heavily stained.

The pages are in German, but there is both legibility and beauty in the drawings accompanying the notes. He'd lost his teaching post in Dusseldorf when the Nazis came to power and was considered one of the Degenerates.In 1992, his diaries were finally published, edited by his son, Felix, and titled, The Diaries of Paul Klee, 1898-1918.
