Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future
A beautiful collective of artist Hilma af Klint based on the Guggenheim exhibit.
When Swedish artist Hilma af Klint died in 1944 at the age of 81, she left behind more than 1,000 paintings and works on paper that she had kept largely private during her lifetime. Believing the world was not yet ready for her art, she stipulated that it should remain unseen for another twenty years. But only in recent decades has the public had a chance to reckon with af Klint's radically abstract painting practiceâ one which predates the work of Vasily Kandinsky and other artists widely considered trailblazers of modernist abstraction.
Get lost in this book with full, colorful pages of art, essays, and a comprehensive biography of af Klint's life.
