What's the verdict?Can you find the image or any auction records?
Expert:  Tim in Antiques replied 1 year ago.

If the Paul Klee Museum, which is the authority that most of us go to, can not find it, then the odds are low that I can. Honestly it does not look like a Paul Klee. In my opinion this was not done by the hand of Paul Klee. Even the signature is off. There are 16 other listed artists with the name of Klee and many who are willing to sign Klee even if their name is not.
