Another painter that made the Rosengart collection meaningful to me was Paul Klee. He, like Pablo Picasso, uses color and lines to his benefit. He definitely had his own style that seemed to be affected by art movements like Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, Futurism, and Abstraction. His pictures are normally difficult to determine which style they belong to. His works show his dry humor and childlike outlook,  Even his own moods and values, and his love of music can be seen in his paintings. Most of his artwork is on a small scale. He experimented with color theory. He worked away from his peers and took new art styles in his own direction. Klee worked with various medias and on many diverse materials for his canvases. Through long attempts, he created his own mastery of color and tones and most of his works illustrate these skills.
