Hilma af Klint was born in Stockholm in 1862 and was a descendant of a galaxy of naval heroes and cartographers. In 1887, she graduated with honors from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and soon established herself as a respected artist. She exhibited skillfully executed figurative paintings and served for some time as secretary of the Association of Swedish Women Artists.

These works, created between 1906 and 1915, reflect an attempt to formulate mystical views on reality. Stylistically, they are strikingly diverse, including both biomorphic and geometric forms. Among them are large-scale and small in size; both with a maximalist and minimalist approach to composition and color.
