HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HILMA!




Today, October 26th, sees the anniversary of the birth of a true abstract pioneer, the Swedish artist Hilma Af Klint.


Producing her striking abstract works well before those of Mondrian, Kandinsky and Malevich came on the scene, this extraordinary painter was truly a 'first-footer' in the world of abstract art.



SVANEN - Hilma Af Klint


I will not write in detail today about this magnificent artist whose theosophical beliefs infused her paintings – you can read more about her and about the importance of Theosophy on early abstraction in earlier articles here https://www.artfullyabstractedblog.com/post/female-artists-and-abstraction and here https://www.artfullyabstractedblog.com/post/kandinsky-scriabin-steiner-and-the-primitive


There – that was a quick and easy post to write! A friend did recently suggest to me that my articles could be shorter (you know who you are)!


I have another post to write today though, and a newsletter so, I'd best get on...
