Paul Klee is Notable.

Paul Klee. Given Name: Paul. Surname: Klee. [1] Klee. Paul Klee was the second child of German music teacher Hans Wilhelm Klee (1849–1940) and Swiss singer Ida Marie Klee, née Frick (1855 –1921). He was born in Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland.

In his early years, following his parents’ wishes, Klee focused on becoming a musician, but later followed visual arts and became an artist.

During World War One Klee was conscripted as a Landsturmsoldat (soldier of the reserve forces in Prussia or Imperial Germany).

He died in 1940 and was buried in Schosshalden cemetery.
