“Color Possesses Me … I Am a Painter”

(p.151) 6 The Rapture of Sensuousness
Crescent Moon over the Rational
Stanford University Press

This chapter analyzes the connection of Paul Klee's art and writings to the work of Martin Heidegger. It explains that many believed that Heidegger's thought was disconnected not only from the artists of his time but from the reality of his time. The chapter also discusses the opinion of Theodor Adorno that Klee's work contradicted Heidegger's idealizing tendencies and the views of Will Grohmann that Klee's was work closer to the Romantics and not Heidegger's search for a new beginning in “The Origin of the Work of Art.”

Keywords:   Paul Klee, Martin Heidegger, idealizing tendencies, Theodor Adorno, Will Grohmann, Romantics, Work of Art
