Insula Dulcamara is the largest of Klee’s work and is a cheerful painting done while the artist was suffering from scleroderma. The name means “Bittersweet Island” and conventional interpretations suggest the symbols arranged on a plain background with eye-catching colors - translated into our own creation - represent Calypso’s Island.
The strong line the artist painted stretches from the left to the right creating a serpent shape and you can almost see a pale face in the center of the painting that appears in other artwork Klee has created.
A new analysis of the dream-like painting, suggests that the symbols represent Klee's own identity and mortality.
