With approximately 4,000 pictures by Paul Klee, the famous painter (40% of the total body of his works), the new Zentrum Paul Klee is the largest collection of this kind worldwide. The extraodinary building, with its wave-like form was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano. Besides art exhibits, the Paul Klee Center is also a platform for music, theater, dance and literature. Paul Klee is one of the most significant artists of the first half of the 20th century. His artistic lifework comprises some 10,000 works. Important groups of works were created in Berne and environs, and many of Klee's works have remained here – with his direct descendants, at the Paul-Klee-Stiftung (Paul Klee Foundation, 1947–2004) or with private collectors. A large part of this oeuvre has been brought together at the Zentrum Paul Klee and made accessible to the general public.
With around 4,000 works the Zentrum Paul Klee boasts the world's most important collection of paintings, watercolours and drawings by Paul Klee as well as a great deal of biographical material in text and picture form.
