The Aesthetic Delights of Hilma af Klint

I’m having a particularly strong Hilma af Klint (1862-1944)  moment phase obsession. This extraordinary, trail-blazing Swedish woman is one of my favourite artists and inspirations. Although her strong mysticism is inextricably linked to her artwork, her paintings stand on their own as abstract marvels and aesthetic delights.
