Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was a Swedish artist who began creating radically abstract paintings in 1906, several years before the first abstract work by Kandinsky in 1911. She thought world was not ready to understand her paintings. She therefor kept them private and we heard rumours that they should stay hidden until forty years after her death. When the artist died in 1944 she left behind 1300 unseen artworks. The artist died dramaticaliy in a car accident in Danderyd. She was educated at Tekniska Skolan Stockholm and later at Konstakademien later called Konstfack..
