“Altarbild nr 1” by Hilma af Klint, Swedish mystic, 20th C.

Hilma af Klint (1862 –1944) was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were amongst the first abstract art. A considerable body of her abstract work predates the first purely abstract compositions by Kandinsky. She belonged to a group called “The Five” (a circle of women who shared her belief in the importance of trying to make contact with ascended masters). Her paintings offered visual representation of complex spiritual ideas. She produced over 1,200 paintings in her career
