When I learn about famous artists who made toys on the side for their children, I'm intrigued. I was delighted when a friend sent me the link to these great photos of painter, Paul Klee, with his puppets. He apparently made these for his son. Of course, there is a great book that is now on my wish list called Paul Klee: Hand Puppets.
Being that I studied painting in college & graduate school, Paul Klee was already a favorite artist of mine. But now he has jumped up on the list after I saw these photos. You know how I love puppets too. He is now up there with Alexander Calder (who also made toys for his children). Thanks for passing this on D!
