Scholars from diverse disciplines tackle the many questions posed by the work and life of abstraction pioneer Hilma af Klint In this thorough critical appraisal, 20 specialists on modern art, art history, philosophy and religious studies examine the unique art, the cultural circumstances and art-historical positioning of Swedish abstractionist Hilma af Klint. Topics explored here range from early abstract art and the impact of Darwinism to Goethe's color theory, as well as the importance of occult religious movements such as theosophy and anthroposophy that influenced the early modernists, and discussions of af Klint's own personal diary notes and research. The book is based on the seminars that were held in conjunction with the exhibition Hilma af Klint: A Pioneer of Abstraction in 2013. This extremely successful exhibition attracted a record number of visitors to the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, after which it continued to the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum in Berlin and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.

The authors of this book invite us to accompany them in walking around an imaginary gallery which exhibits the work of six artists -- Edvard Munch, Marc Chagall, Stanley Spencer, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jacob Lawrence and Vincent Van Gogh. Along the way the authors draw widely on their own experience, essentially one of joy in the presence of visual forms -- pictures, sculptures, landscapes, seascapes and city-scapes, and other memorable art-objects. Their conviction is that too much Western Christianity, with its strong emphasis on words, creeds and doctrines, has forgotten just how important the visual can be for human development; we 'look and see' long before we 'speak and hear with understanding'. The authors urge that the same seeing-skills used on a tour of a gallery are those also needed for the 'spiritual' journey, as we seek to discover God's elusive presence in the world around us. Their hope is that, through looking carefully at the work of these six artists, readers will find fr
