Hilma af Klint - 'Group V, The Seven-Pointed Star, No. 1' Abstract Framed Print & Mount, 70 x 80cm, Brown/Multi
Product code: 77590201
A framed print from the 'Seven-Pointed Star' series by Hilma af Klint, 1908. Also known as the Evolution series, which in the Christian tradition exists as a symbol of protection, the seven points of the star refers to the perfection of God and at the same time to the seven days of the Creation story.
This archival giclee print has a cotton core mount in a handmade and hand-finished sustainably sourced solid ash wood frame. Made in the UK by museum specialists and printed on heavyweight, matt-smooth fine art paper, it's ready to hang on your wall.
Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was a ground-breaking Swedish artist who began creating radically abstract paintings in 1906, several years before the first abstract work by Kandinsky in 1911. Convinced that the world was not yet ready to understand her paintings, af Klint kept them largely private and stipulated that they remain hidden until twenty years after her death. When the artist died in 1944 she left behind 1300 unseen abstract works and more than 125 notebooks.
Hilma af Klint’s style is defined by her unprecedented, vivid colour palette and original use of scale and composition. Her work explores different aspects of cosmic and human evolution in an effort to visually describe spiritual views of reality, reflecting her deep interest in the natural world and the connection between the spheres of the visible and invisible. In 1986 Hilma af Klint’s work was rediscovered, and in the subsequent decades, her work has received major critical recognition and gained incredible popularity among contemporary audiences. In 2019, the Guggenheim held a survey of her work titled ‘Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future’ that attracted a record-breaking number of visitors to the museum.
