The article seeks to unravel the conception of time that underlies Paul Klee’s aesthetics. The authors discuss Klee’s theoretical texts such as his articles and presentations as well as his paintings. These written and painted works constitute a totality that expresses Klee’s philosophy. Klee emphasizes the dynamics of and the very formation of totality. The authors analyze conceptual relations between motion, creation, and time. Time is a creative force, the principle of creativity. It is complex and multidimensional reality in Klee’s view. The authors consider in detail the nature of the confl ict that endowed Klee’s oeuvre with dramatism and feelings of insecurity. This confl ict is in fact a clash between the time of creation, which is being itself, and the individual time, which is the time of an artist. In the fi nal part the authors focus on the motive of angels, that is in a way a consummation of Klee’s artistic development.
