Hilma af Klint was the first purely abstract painter the world has known but, as we see so often throughout history, she was overlooked by the establishment by virtue of being a woman. Most people think of Kandinsky as the father of modern abstract art but Klint, working as part of “the Five” was generating purely abstract creations several years before him. Even in 1970, the Stockholm Moderna Museet declined a donation of her life's work. Thankfully, in the 21st century, she is finally being celebrated; the Louisiana Museum of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen currently has an extensive exhibition. I came to Klint through the use of her figurative painting, The Swan, on this sweatshirt (above) by Acne – the perfect fusion of art and fashion. Not sure if I should wear it, or hang it on my wall.
