Hilma af Klint: Major New Exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW

Hilma af Klint: The Secret Paintings: Opening 12 June – 19 September 2021

Hilma af Klint: The Secret Paintings  features The Ten Largest (1907) - her celebrated series of paintings, each over 3 metres high – part of the cycle of work that she considered her most important, The Paintings for the Temple (1906-1915).  

The exhibition also shines a light on her early botanical studies, experimental drawings made with the spiritualist group The Five, and a large selection of abstract watercolours, several of which have never before been placed on public view. A selection of af Klint’s notebooks gives fascinating insights into her influences and processes.

These remarkable works are going to Australia for the first survey of af Klint’s work to be shown in the Asia-Pacific region.  

The Swedish painter Hilma af Klint is now recognised as a pioneer of abstract as well as mystical art and is considered one of the outstanding female artists of the early 20th century.
