Yesterday, my blog was about Klee's Goldfish. While looking at my Klee book, I found his picture Full Moon (1919). He again has used a golden yellow object to dominate the composition. He uses the moon as a metaphor for himself.

His beautiful moon lights the town below. Gorgeous, colored geometric shapes fill the landscape: 3 smaller red-orange spheres; various black and white squares and triangles; rectangles in greens, purples, blues, etc. He is the moon; the other spheres are people in his life. The window on the lower left side speaks of his home. All of this on a soft ground of olive greens and browns, dotted with trees. His world is tranquil.
