The German-Swiss modernist painter Paul Klee (1879-1940) suffered in the final years of his life from a severe illness, diagnosed in 1936 as scleroderma, later renamed SSc. New classification criteria for this disease issued in 2013 now allow for a diagnosis to be confirmed. Important for this process, however, is the question of whether or not Klee's hands were affected by his illness. The morphology of the artist's hands and evidence of dysgraphic changes in his handwriting are reviewed as indications of his manual pathology. Despite his illness, Klee triumphed over his infirmity, simplifying his painting and drawing styles and substantially increasing his artistic output from 1936 until his death in 1940.
