Lecture within the cycle Między figuracją a abstrakcją (Between Figuration and Abstraction) of the Art Transfer Foundation.
The Swedish painter Hilma af Klint became a sensation in art history in recent years when it emerged that she was one of the earliest pioneers to create abstract works. She was long denied this position due to her links with the occult. The lecture will deal with her most famous series of 111 paintings created between 1906 and 15, when the artist began to move clearly away from depicting visible reality.
