About Michael

Michael Klein paints with an unusual sensitivity toward nature”something he attributes to growing up in the Midwest. After completing high school, Klein enrolled himself in numerous stringent atelier programs, dictated by the French tradition of painting. Later he left Minnesota and sought out the renowned painter Jacob Collin to help further hone his craft.

Klein places the greatest importance on staying truthful to life and his own experiences, so despite his rigorous classical training and the influence of his accomplished peers, he sees his work developing in a direction that is both unique and representative of his own era.

I see the insouciance of the youth in the second painting ... the room seems very dark, the wall is very dark too, wich is a very unusual color for a wall. The dress of the girl is in contrast with the rest of the room, the girl does not know yet about the world, she sleeps ...

The top painting is titled,"The Next Day," and to me, the blanket looks to be of such soft texture, it is as if you could reach out and touch the softness.
Anyone who has daughters understands the essence behind the painting, "At Rest." Young ladies are a big ball of energy.

I love the loneliness and quiet moments of the work here.

better yet...he can evoke(Margie).Indeed!
It's beautifull that great Art will envoke different feelings from each person. Someone mentioned a young uncomfortable girl and a woman who the artist regretted sleeping with; but I saw a young girl relaxed in possibly her granparents chair and warm and inviting bed, a place to crawl back into not regret.

The painting of the girl in a purple dress makes me think that she is young...innocent...and someone is in the same room making feel uncomfortable and making her feel she needs to curl up in a chair or a child passed out. The the woman laying in the bed is certainly someone who he regrets sleeping with. These paintings made me feel uncomfortable but now I can't stop thinking of them, so it must have made a huge impact.
