A Short Introduction on Method and Intention in Hilma af Klint's Work from as Esoteric Perspective Sweden 1998 Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was a progressive and spiritualist painter and a pioneer among women artists.

She was also a student of Rudolph Steiner's teachings. Her work ranges from the colorful, geometrical style of early modernism, to excellent portraits, to an abstracted fantasy world reminiscent of Klimt. This short monograph contains a biographical essay presenting her ideas, her reasoning and her ambitions in a most intriguing and concise manner. English, 1998, Illust.
