Hilma af Klint: Occult Painter and Abstract Pioneer
Text by Åke Fant. Translation by Ruth Urbom.

Hilma af Klint is nowadays regarded as one of the Abstract Art pioneers.
She painted more than 1200 works before her death in 1944, but never
showed them publicly outside her anthropological and occult circles. After
twenty years of artistry she developed a distinct abstract style, and devoted
the rest of her life to a grand painterly mission. The spiritual aspect was
the most important starting point for Hilma af Klint, just as it was for her
contemporaries Kandinsky, Malevich and Mondrian. These early modernists
were influenced by the then contemporary occult writers like Madame
Blavatsky, Annie Besant, C.W. Leadbeater, and certainly af Klint’s spiritual
leader Rudolf Steiner.
