Hilma Af Klint
Painting the UnseenBook - 2016
Hilma af Klint is now regarded as a pioneer of abstract art. While her paintings were not seen publicly until 1987, her work from the early 20th century pre-dates the first purely abstract paintings by Kandinsky, Mondrian or Malevich. Af Klint sought to express her feelings transmitted to her from nature and the unseen spiritual world. This catalogue focuses primarily on her body of work "The Paintings for the Temple", 1906-15, and numerous paintings from the key series never published before. Exhibition: Serpentine Galleries, London, UK (03.03-15.05.2016).
