About the Artwork

“Angel Applicant” is a 1939 artwork by Paul Klee, a Swiss-German artist.

The painting features a hybrid creature that resembles the offspring of a bulldog and a Halloween mask. The creature is depicted as an angel applicant, but it seems doubtful that it will ever reach heaven. Klee composed twenty-nine works that feature angels in 1939, having in earlier years only sporadically depicted them. His angels were not the celestial kind but hybrid creatures beset with human foibles and whims. Klee’s angels are “forgetful,” “still female,” “ugly,” incomplete," or “poor”—as the titles he gave these pictures indicate. In this work, he covered a sheet of newspaper with black gouache on which he then drew the outlines of the figure and of the crescent moon with a thick, soft graphite pencil. Then he filled in these forms with a thin white wash. It is the black ground peeking through the white pigment that gives this creature its ghostly shimmer.

This artwork is a unique and intriguing piece that would make a great addition to any art collection.
