Hilma af Klint

Hilma af Klint was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings are considered to be the first Western abstract art known. Her paintings, which sometimes resemble diagrams, were a visual representation of complex spiritual ideas.


She belonged to a group of women called "The Five", inspired by Theosophy belief or the importance of trying to contact "High Masters" by performing séances.
