The Journey to Tunisia 1914 by Michael Baumgartner (Hatje Cantz, 2014) When Paul Klee and his fellow painters August Macke and Louis Moilliet traveled to Tunisia for two weeks in April 1914, they produced close to two hundred paintings, drawings and photographs among them. This book gorgeously documents many of them and gives insight into what many considered a flash point for what is called “modern” in art. Look at these works from a hundred years ago—still fresh and stunning—to see just how much contemporary art owes to the efforts of the early modernists. View on Amazon
