  "abstract": "<p>The neuropsychiatrist Fritz Lotmar (1878 - 1964) was one of Klee\u2019s most important friends. Against the background of his bio- graphy, the stages in the friendship that be- gan in the early years in Berne (1890 \u2013 1908) and ended with Klee\u2019s death in 1940 are pre- sented and discussed \u2013 the early years they shared in Berne, their meeting in Munich (1908), their reunion in Berne, after they left Germany in 1933/34, Lotmar as a collector of Paul Klee\u2019s works. Interest is focused both on Lotmar himself and his wife Olga, his father Philipp Lotmar and the children\u00a0Walter, Ruth and Paula. This relationship with Klee is seen against the background of Lotmar\u2018s rank as an outstanding scientist \u2013 his comprehensive neurological training, his activity as a clinician and researcher in Munich and Berne, his publications on the subject of aphasia (inability to speak) and his importance as a scholar, neverthe- less, he never became a tenured professor. Finally, the question is discussed to what extent medical knowledge has found its way into the work of his friend Paul Klee.</p>",
