Just before her death in 1944 at the age of 81, the Swedish painter and mystic Hilma af Klint stipulated that her paintings were not to be publicly exhibited for 20 years. In fact, another 40-plus years were to pass before inklings of her vast oeuvre began to reach public consciousness, with the landmark 1987 exhibition and book "The Spiritual in Art." Since then, critics, artists and historians have praised her with ever-increasing awe, and today af Klint's paintings, watercolors and sketches--numbering over 1,000 in total--have never looked so contemporary, presaging as they do the works of Beatriz Milhazes, Elizabeth Murray and Tal R., and Agnes Martin, Emma Kunz and Arthur Dove before them. For af Klint herself, as a medium for an art she was despairingly unable to comprehend, contemporaneity was irrelevant: her work--much of which was dictated by a spirit guide named Ananda--unfolded in complete ignorance of Kandinsky, Malevich or Mondrian, who likewise practised an abstraction informed by theosophy and occult philosophy. Af Klint's abstractions preceded those of Kandinsky, who is usually credited with inventing abstract painting: as early as 1906, she was devising large-scale canvases filled with grids, circles, spirals and petal-like forms--sometimes diagrammatic, sometimes biomorphic. She was painting watercolor monochromes in 1916, and making automatic drawings long before the Surrealists. This monumental 280-page monograph, with 200 color plates, is the first full Hilma af Klint overview. A landmark publication, it not only reveals the moving lucidity of her art, but challenges the narrative of abstract art in the twentieth century

The legacy of Hilma af Klint : nine contemporary responses( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hilma af Klint was an abstract pioneer who eschewed representational painting as early as 1906. Her radical spiritual imagery strives to provide insights into the different dimensions of existence. Besides Hilma af Klint's important and radical abstract paintings, she left behind a plethora of notebooks and drawings. Taking one of these, 'A Work on Flowers, Mosses and Lichen', as a starting point, nine contemporary artists were invited to response to Hilma af Klint and her legacy. Hilma af Klint did not want her works to be seen until several decades after her death

Cecilia Edefalk. Hilma af Klint. Betrakta växter / Viewing plants by Sigurður Nordal( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Swedish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of my strongest childhood experiences was that of lying in the grass while my grandfather fished. I lay there gazing at the shapes and colours of the clouds drifting across the sky, smelling the grass and flowers around me, hearing the buzzing of the bees, feeling the soft wind cares me and listning to the tranquilizing sound of the water running by, while I felt my body pressing heavy against the earth. It was as if I was dissolving into nature's embrace and into the very stillness of time. The author Halldór Laxness describes how the whiteness of the glacier melds with the sky. This beautiful text describes a profound understanding of the magic of nature; where "beauty alone reigns ... beyond all demands". This is also the essence of the art of Cecilia Edefalk and Hilma af Klint
