Special Limited-Edition Boxed Set:
The Prints of Paul Klee
Paul Klee was an extraordinary draftsman, printmaker, teacher, and theoretician with a singular style whose work greatly impacted the development of 20th-century art. Klee's prints demonstrate, more fully than his works in any other medium, his remarkable evolution from a traditionalist to one of the most daring innovators of modern art.
This limited-edition facsimile of The Prints of Paul Klee, originally published by The Museum of Modern Art in 1947, presents 40 color and black-and-white etchings and lithographs by Klee in MoMA's collection, ranging in date from 1903 to 1931 and each printed on a separate sheet of stiff card.
Accompanied by the original booklet featuring an essay by James Thrall Soby (then Chairman of the Museum's Department of Painting and Sculpture), and a new text by Christophe Cherix, Chief Curator of Prints and Drawings at MoMA, the prints are encased in a cloth-covered and ribbon-bound box.
This unique and luxurious portfolio, reissued for the first time since its original publication in 1947, is available in a limited English-language edition of 2,000 numbered copies.

On September 15, the edition will be released to the public at the publication price of $450.
