Translation of Über die moderne Kunst, translated by Paul Findlay.

This book contains the essence of Klee's philosophy of painting and is probably the finest, clearest description of abstract art as understood by the creator and not the critic. Klee's genius as a guide was to transform exact scientific observation - which event he layman can grasp - into inspired imaginative interpretations of the human mind and the symbolic patterns it makes of the natural world.
