Abstract: Study on the Theory of Form conceived in the early twentieth century by artist Paul Klee and published in the
book The Creative Thinking (KLEE, 1920). The Theory of Form of Paul Klee is a demonstration of an artistic thought that
adopts the previously established formal prerequisites that result in the practice of artistic representation. Klee identified
the formal relationship between music and the visual arts, providing connections between the melodic line and the line
in the drawing, rhythm and sequence of modules and sub-modules, the pulses of the measures and the divisions of the
painting, metrics in music and the modulation of shape and color in the visual arts. Klee also presented his experiences
with overlapping colors and textures to visually represent polyphony. The Theory of Form of Paul Klee is an example of a
study that requires formal models for the artistic and design elaboration.
