Hilma af Klint: Painting the Unseen

Before Kandinsky, before Mondrian and before Malevich, there was Hilma af Klint. By day, she painted tame academic portraits and Swedish landscapes in her Stockholm studio. By night, she studied the occult, conducted séances and painted the ravishing, almost psychedelic abstract paintings that, by design, would not be celebrated until decades after her death. Pictured here is her monumental 1915 painting, "Altarpiece, No. 1, Group X" which stands almost eight feet tall, and is reproduced from Hilma af Klint: Painting the Unseen, published to accompany the Serpentine Galleries' acclaimed recent exhibition.
