Description

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 20 years. But only in recent decades has the public had a chance  to reckon with af Klint's radically abstract painting practice—one  which predates the work of Vasily Kandinsky and other artists widely  considered trailblazers of modernist abstraction. Her boldly colorful  works, many of them large-scale, reflect an ambitious, spiritually  informed attempt to chart an invisible, totalizing world order through a  synthesis of natural and geometric forms, textual elements and esoteric  symbolism.
