About the artwork
Critics have disagreed on the meaning of this work. For some, the title and the arrows present in the painting have erotic and phallic connotations. In contrast, the art critic Will Grohmann saw the figure and composition as a 'fashionable lady, who is spite of her striking elegance is more or less helpless in face of the oppressive spirits’.

About the artist
Born near Munchenbuchsee, Switzerland in 1879, Klee was an inventive artist, art theorist and talented musician. In 1898 he moved to Munich to study art first under Knirr then moving to Stuck in the Munich Academy. His first major work was series of ten etchings ‘Inventions’ in 1903-05. At various points in his life he associated with artists Kandinsky, Jawlensky, Macke, Marc and Deluanay. In 1921 he moved to Weimar to teach at the Bauhaus, later moving with the academy to Dessau. He taught until 1933, when he was dismissed by the Nazis. This dismissal profoundly affected him, both physically and his output of work. Klee died in exile, in Switzerland in 1940.
