Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future

Title: Hilm af Klint: Paintings for the Future
Author: Tracey Bashkoff
Publisher: Guggenheim
Artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) created 193 paintings between 1906 and 1915 known as The Paintings for the Temple, the ambitious cycle that would come to define her. These works on canvas and on paper are far removed from the conventional landscapes and portraits that she perfected while attending the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm years earlier. Rather, they are primarily abstract, with imagery born of botanicals and other natural forms that grew more simplified and geometric with time. Their production over the course of these years represents a radical effort by af Klint to find visual expression for a transcendent, spiritual reality beyond the observable world.
