Hilma Af Klint: Paintings for the Future

Tracey Bashkoff

Accompanying Swedish artist, Hilma af Klint’s first major exhibition in the US, this book thoroughly explores the artists’ collection of works alongside essays that dive into the social, intellectual, and spiritual context of her development. Klint died in 1944 and left behind over 1,000 of her works that were generally kept private during her lifetime as she believed the world was not yet ready for her art. Her groundbreaking creativity and imagination radically predates modern abstract artists of her time including Kandinsky and Mondrian. The pages also include a roundtable discussion among contemporary artists, curators, and scholars discussing her relevance to art in the 21st century. A truly remarkable insight into the artist’s creative magic. 

Hardcover, 244 pages. Measures 9” x 12”. Published by Guggenheim Museum Publications. Written and Edited by Tracey Bashkoff.
