When Swedish artist Hilma af Klint died in 1944 at the age of 81, she left behind more than 1,000 paintings and works on paper that she had kept largely private during her lifetime. Only in recent decades has the public had a chance to reckon with af Klint's radically abstract painting practice—one that reflects a spiritually informed attempt to chart an invisible, totalizing world order through a synthesis of natural and geometric forms, textual elements and esoteric symbolism. Accompanying the first major survey exhibition of the artist's work in the United States, Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future represents her groundbreaking painting series while expanding recent scholarship to present the fullest picture yet of her life and art. Featured essays explore the social, intellectual and artistic context of af Klint's break with figuration in 1906 and subsequent development, placing her in the context of Swedish modernism and folk art traditions, contemporary scientific discoveries and spiritualist and occultist movements.
