Happy Birthday, Paul Klee!

Happy Birthday, Paul Klee, born 139 years ago today. Chuck Jones was inspired by the artwork of Paul Klee and created “Portrait du Cochon” (Portrait of a Pig) as an homage in 1989. Klee’s original, “Senecio” from 1922 is below Jones’s.

Klee was and is revered by artists and one of his most often quoted statements is: “A line is a dot that went for a walk.”
