The Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein will show 100 master pieces by the Swiss artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) from the Djerassi Collection, supplemented by paintings from its own and from private collections.

The collection of works by Paul Klee, which Carl Djerassi (born 1923 in Vienna) has given to the San Francisco MOMA as a permanent loan and a donation following his death, shows the author and scientist who became world-famous as the inventor of the birth control pill, in a new light.

Djerassi, who emigrated to the United States via Bulgaria following the anschluss of Austria to Hitler´s Germany, began to collect works by Paul Klee in the mid-sixties - with a connoiseur´s eye and great personal involvement.

The remarkable collection presents a highly individual view of the work of one of the most important and popular artists of the 20th century, whose creativity and innovative form finding are unique. The works on paper, drawings, graphic works, gouaches, watercolors, and paintings exhibited at the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein present a comprehensive survey of the work of Paul Klee, from the early works by the high school student all the way to those created shortly before his death.
