A handsomely redesigned edition of essays examining af Klint’s final abstractions
The result of a series of lectures delivered during the 2016 Serpentine Galleries exhibition Hilma af Klint: Painting the Unseen, this volume gathers essays examining the last abstract series made by Hilma af Klint (1862-1944). The paintings were all created in the first half of the year 1920 and are the last paintings af Klint made before turning to watercolor.
Reproductions of these images are complemented by essays from Briony Fer, David Lomas, Branden W. Joseph, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Daniel Birnbaum, which shed new light on af Klint and her importance for artists today, also addressing the need for a broader conception of art history that her work proposes.
Beautifully redesigned by Sweden’s most famous designer, this book is a key contribution to the burgeoning scholarship on this immensely popular painter.

Who are we in the art world? We behave as though we are just a pack of sheep. Af Klint was a fabulous artist absolutely no doubt. However this scholar rush to claim her as mother of abstraction is getting tiresome. Her design theories are becoming tiresome too. Three years ago I was right with the front of the pack claiming her a GENIUS.
Now I step back to agree af Klint is amazing. Still to me she is no more amazing than Florine Stettheimer, Frances Hodgkins, Faith Ringgold, Marie Laurencin and Luchita Hurtado. A book recognizing truly great women artists is so long overdue!
Everytime an attempt at such a book is published the result includes so many low talented blue chip big shots I am guessing required for funding from the blue chip art galleries.
