Klee retrospective at Tokyo for one more month

An exhibition showing the work of German-Swiss painter Paul Klee will be at The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (MOMAT) for one more month, ending on July 31st.

The retrospective will show nearly 200 works from the artist's oeuvre, including Landschaft bei E (in Bayern) (which translates as Landscape near E) and Bluhendes, or Flowering.

Having started on the May 31st, the closing of the exhibition - which has also appeared at the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto - represents the end of a two-month stint at the MOMAT, one of the most prestigious galleries in Japan.

The contemporary art gallery notes on its website that the new exhibition focuses on the physicality of Klee's artwork.

"This Klee exhibition, which will be the first to be held at The National Museum of Modern Art will build upon the legacy of these prior exhibitions to focus on a perspective that has not previously been considered, 'how Klee's works were physically created'," the gallery says.

The cost of attending the exhibition is 1,500 yen (£11.60) for adults, 1,100 yen (£8.50) for university or college students and only 700 yen (£5.40) for high-school students.
