Big Girls Love Art: Paul Klee

Filed under: Art — Francesca @ 9:47 am

Francesca admits it: She’s plum out of ideas for the Big Girls in Art series. If she thinks of something else, or if an artist is brought to her attention, then she will continue. Artists and art lovers: Send Francesca information about your Big Girls in Art to francesca [at] shoeblogs [dot] com!

Meanwhile, she cannot bear not to beautify this blog with interesting and stimulating images! The Big Girls, we are multi-faceted beings, and we enjoy beauty as much as anyone: the beauty of our bodies, of other beautiful bodies, and of the fascinating art.

Our devoted readers may recall that Francesca is a big (ha!) fan of  expressionism.

So, today, we gaze upon the works of Paul Klee. Oh, how it makes Francesca happy!

  2. May I recommend my beloved Paul Delvaux? Women in his paintings tend to be beautifully full figured – here is a couple of samples I found online:,

    Another of my idols is Giorgio de Chirico (whose metaphysical painting had more to do with trains and mannequins, frankly) and his recurring statue of Ariadne. Lookit here:,

  3. I heart Paul Klee’s work too!! You chose some outstanding examples. I’m an artist and a high school art teacher, and it’s so nice to log onto one of my very favorite blogs and find a kindred spirit! :)

  4. Check out F. Botero. Spanish artist, does some really cool big women.

  5. I love that Blaue Nacht painting.

    How about exploring photography for images of real women? Leonard Nimoy’s one of the latest (he happens to be the best known) to do a series of nudes on larger women. But he’s definitely not the only one.

  6. No Renoir? Rubens? Brueghel?

    I second the Nimoy suggestion.

    I really enjoy the art posts.
