"Paul Klee – Making Visible" at the Tate Modern in London is the first exhibition to be put on as a result of the Tate's partnership with financial giant, EY. Two more major exhibitions are planned over the next two years. The show at the Tate ran October 16, 2013 - March 9, 2014, but visitors to the website can still enjoy online features such as the blog, Paul Klee A - Z, written by curator Matthew Gale. In the post C is for Cat, Klee tells artists what to do when a cat runs across their work. In 1931, when an American collector, Edward M.M. Warburg, visited Klee's studio, a cat started to run across a still-wet water color, alarming Warburg. Klee said to let the cat walk where it wanted, because, ‘Many years from now, one of you art connoisseurs will wonder how in the world I ever got that effect.’ Gale links to the full story related in an issue of the Tate, Etc. newsletter from fall, 2013, by Nicholas Fox-Weber. Other blog posts, not part of the A - Z series, provide a behind the scene look at the process of installing the exhibition (October 9, 2013) and Klee's rules of Bauhaus. There's also a 4 minute video that provides an overview of the show with Matthew Gale.
