The Louisiana showcases the work and history of the fascinating but lesser-known Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944).

An avant-garde and spiritual figure, Klint's mysticism had a profound influence on her abstract paintings. Her work ran parallel to the development of abstract art by other artists such as Mondrian, Malevich and Kandinsky, all of whom were inspired by the Theosophical Movement, a philosophy that sought to understand the presumed mysteries of being, nature and divinity.

Klint's abstract diagram-like paintings were a visual representation of complex philosophical ideas and, unlike her figurative works, were never exhibited publicly in her lifetime.

In recent years there has been growing international recognition and appreciation of her work and, over the course of the last year, this exhibition in Copenhagen has been shown in Stockholm, Berlin and Malaga.

Tues-Fri 11.00-22.00 Sat-Sun 11.00-18.00
