A moving biography – told in vivid pictures. In five chapters, Philipp Deines traces stages in the life of the now world-famous Swedish painter Hilma af Klint. The personal and artistic development of this pioneer of abstraction is illuminated here. In this book, readers discover how the artist worked, lived, and loved, and what influenced her: from the great scientific upheavals to family history, anthroposophy, and spiritualist séances. In the depiction of her spiritual experiences, Deines’ visual language is influenced by Klint’s fantastic pictorial worlds. Julia Voss, author of the first comprehensive biography of the artist in 2020, was closely involved in the creation of this graphic novel. Biography, art history, and contemporary narrative style merge and complement each other in these magnificent visual worlds.
