Hilma af Klint Catalogue Raisonne Volume III: The Blue Books (1906-1915)
A richly illustrated book of Hilma af Klint's paintings
Hilma af Klint rarely exhibited her work during her lifetime, and her magnum opus, The Paintings for the Temple, was shown to the public in the series of exhibitions that started in 2013 at Moderna Museet in Stockholm and ended with the grand exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2018-19.
This series of 193 paintings began with af Klint receiving communication from an otherworldly figure during a séance. Specific themes, such as evolution and duality, are conveyed through vivid pastel colour schemes and intricate geometric patterns arranged carefully on canvases that reach over ten feet in height.
