Hilma af Klint: The Complete Catalogue Raisonné

Volumes I–VII


An authoritative, stupendously produced seven-volume publication from Bokförlaget Stolpe

Virtually unknown in her lifetime, Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) has taken the world by storm since two recent exhibitions—at Moderna Museet Stockholm in 2013 and the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2018—brought her groundbreaking work to international attention. Now, nearly 70 years after her death, the history of abstract art has literally been rewritten.

Collecting all seven clothbound volumes of Bokförlaget Stolpe's monumental Catalogue Raisonné—including distinct studies of af Klint's Spiritualistic Drawings, her epic, visionary Paintings for the Temple series, the Blue Books sketchbooks of preparatory works, her Parsifal and the Atom series attempting to understand her early clairvoyant experiences, the Geometric Series examining botany and science in relation to spiritualism, Late Watercolors and Landscapes made after her mother's death, and now, the final volume collecting Landscapes, Portraits and Miscellaneous Works made 1886–1940—this 1569-page, slipcased edition presents all of the known works of this game-changing pioneer of abstraction, many of which have never been exhibited. Based on the artist’s notes, all of the works are presented in the order numbered by anthroposophist Olof Sundström in 1945.

“A catalogue raisonné is necessary in order to see the different cycles, motifs and symbols that recur in such an exciting way," co-editor Daniel Birnbaum writes. "If someone really wants to understand how Hilma af Klint’s works function, they need these books."

“When Hilma af Klint bequeathed her work to the future, she did not want to leave the image we would form of it to chance," art historian Julia Voss adds. "She was her own archivist, editor and censor. She placed her spiritual work in the center, in words and pictures. This legacy, there can be no doubt, was most important to her."

In addition to the publication of this highly anticipated edition, the unique virtual reality piece The Temple, written by co-editors Daniel Birnbaum and Kurt Almqvist and directed by Marika Stolpe, will be released in connection with the publication of the seventh and last book. The experience is produced by Acute Art and premieres during Frieze London at KOKO in Camden, October 12–16, 2022.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Dagens Nyheter

Birgitta Rubrin

Very few artists have merited a “catalogue raisonné” – a catalogue of their collected artworks with images and basic facts such as titles, the year created, technique, dimensions. But now Hilma af Klint is in the finest of company with luminaries such as Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky and Andy Warhol. Sweden’s national painter, Anders Zorn, has only had his etches fully catalogued whereas af Klint will be accorded seven sumptuous volumes published by Bokförlaget Stolpe, all with English text to satisfy the booming international interest.

Artnet

Now, the full depth and breadth of Klint’s prolific and extraordinary career is being fully documented in a seven-part catalogue raisonné from Swedish publishing house Bokförlaget Stolpe, distributed by Artbook | DAP. It is the first time that Klint’s dazzling, spiritual oeuvre, which often dabbles in the occult, will be presented in its totality.

A full picture of her accomplishments has emerged [...] Further cementing her legacy, the first three volumes of a seven-volume catalogue raisonné of af Klint’s work is being released this month by the Swedish publisher Bokförlaget Stolpe.
