The Goldfish by Paul Klee

The central fish in The Goldfish, by Paul Klee, gives off a golden yellow glow. This painting is one of his many mysterious pictures which crosses over into the transcendental. The glowing fish hovers in a deep black sea, much larger than the smaller, pleasing red and purple fish at the perimeters of the work. The small cyan blue waves ripple in the dark alongside the pretty, grey-blue aquatic plants.

The sea represents his deep introspection, and the golden fish is Klee himself, glowing with confidence in his silent, peaceful, beautiful world of creation.
