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.

Learn about the life and painting of artist Hilma af Klint in this Hilma af Klint biography. The Swedish artist did not have any contact with the modern movements of her time, yet she is now generally considered to be the pioneer of abstract art – her first abstract painting created in 1906, pre-dates Kandinsky’s by five years.
