With the reverse glass paintings created by Paul Klee (1879–1940) between 1905 and 1917, one of the most exciting and extraordinary groups of works from the artist’s early period takes centre stage. Formally, each work reveals three views worthy of discovery: from the front, from the back and through the semitransparent surface.

The book includes illustrations of all 56 existent works, as well as well-researched essays, which investigate the special art historical, the art technological and the conservation importance of the reverse gloss paintings.
