“Color is the place where our brain and the universe meet”—Paul Klee, born today in 1879. Known for his unique pictorial language, Klee conveyed his meanings through an often whimsical fusion of form and color. In “Red Balloon” (1922), Klee depicts a cluster of delicately colored, floating geometric shapes and a charming cityscape. The work embodies Klee’s expert use of color as well as the transformation of his experiments in tonal value and line into visual anecdotes. Learn more: http://gu.gg/FgO130hix1j.

Elizabeth Eleanor Siddall’s pencil drawing presents her own interpretation of the popular Lady of Shalott theme, showing the moment when the lady turns away from her loom to glance out of the window towards Sir Lancelot, who she could previously only see in a reflection in her circular mirror. The consequences of her move, which will bring about her eventual death, are implicit in the threads bursting out of the tapestry frame and the cracks that have appeared in the mirror. See this work in 'Reflections: Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites'. Members go free, book online and save: http://bit.ly/2uSO363

The wheel of life is depicted in this 19th-century Tibetan Buddhist thangka. A thangka is used for teaching or as a devotional object and this one shows the world in the arms of the demon Mara, who is associated with temptation, death and impermanence. The three segments at the top of the wheel show the higher realms of existence, and the bottom three show the sufferings of animals, ghosts and hell.
