Sicilian Landscape dates to Klee's first visit to the Mediterranean island in 1924. Pastel blocks of color—rooted in Paul Cézanne's fractured approach to landscape—suggest the sea, sky, hills, houses, and perhaps a classical temple near the center. Klee painted this image while employed at the Bauhaus, where he was developing his own ideas on form, line, color, and balance; Sicilian Landscape works simultaneously as a recognizable image and a painterly exercise in contrasting color.
