WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Photo Challenges, postaday

For the Weekly Photo Challenge theme Masterpiece, I chose these photos from the large exhibition with Hilma af Klint ( 1862 –1944 ) at the Modern Museum of Art i Stockholm.  She was a Swedish artist and mystic, a pioneer of abstract art. Her paintings or diagrams were a visual representation of complex philosophical ideas. Hilma af Klint created masterpieces of integrity a hundred years ago.

“While the artist’s naturalistic work continued to be exhibited in Stockholm and beyond during her lifetime, her abstract work was largely kept private. In her will, she even asked that her abstract paintings not be shown in public until at least twenty years after her death, noting that audiences were not yet capable of understanding her work.

“Hilma af Klint, a Pioneer of Abstraction”  will be on display at the Hamburger Bahnhof-Museum für Gegenwart in Berlin from June 15 to Oct. 6 and at the Museo Picasso Málaga from Oct. 21 to Feb. 9. From a review in the New York Times.
