The original work is dated 1922 and is kept at the Kunst Museum in Basel, Switzerland, the artist's birthplace. The term "senecio", title of the painting, is of Latin origin and it literally means "old". Paul Klee paints a stylized human face divided into rectangles of colour. Squared geometric shapes make up the masked face of the subject, enclosed in a large circle, and they define its multicoloured clothing too. The eyes are placed asymmetrically, and the pupils are highlighted by two red circles, which give the face a peculiar expression. The representation of this subject by the artist has given life to many interpretations: the most convincing one has imagined that Klee has made a portrait of himself during old age. The work reveals the painter's ability to "make fun of himself". Paul Klee proves to be endowed with subtle humour and to be very skilled at transforming reality into a fantastic and poetic world: the different shape of the eyebrows suggests the clown's make-up, while the white colour recalls the Pierrot character, displaying the artist's image as an acrobat. Always an admirer of primitive art and of tribal masks especially, he is inspired by them for the representation of this subject. Klee's approach to the elementary geometric figures and the introduction of very luminous, almost transparent colours within his works is due to the influence of his friend Vassily Kandinsky.
