Hilma af Klint: the women who invented abstraction
We often say that Kandinsky invented abstraction but only a few years before him, Hilma af Klint actually did! Take a look at our new playlist to learn more about this mysterious Swedish artist who asks to keep her work secret for at least 20 years after her death.

Hilma af Klint was a painter making abstract art years before men like Kandinsky and she was exploring automatic drawing long before the surrealists. She knew she was well ahead of her time, which is why she stipulated in her will, that many of her greatest works were not to be displayed until 20 years after her death.
