The Ten Largest No. 05
Hilma af Klint was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were the first Western abstract art known to the current art community. She belonged to a group called "The Five", a circle of women inspired by Theosophy who shared a belief in the importance of trying to contact the so-called "High Masters" — often by way of séances. Her paintings, which sometimes resemble diagrams, were a visual representation of complex spiritual ideas.
