Group IX The Dove

by hilma af klint

From: $89.00
  • Print Description
      The soft geometric musings of Group IX The Dove was painted by Hilma af Klint in 1915, and is part of a collection of paintings which resembled diagrams and visual representations of complex mystic and spiritual ideals. Group IX The Dove depicts a transversed heart inside a globe emanating opposing white and pink pigments atop of a rainbow prism. The four quadrants behind the circle adopts opposing colours again, categorising this striking work as an af Klint diagram. The physical world aspires upwards, towards the ethereal rays of light; the spirit world descends, becoming darkened by form and colour. Group IX The Dove is an elegant turn of the century abstract reproduction worthy of a special place in a living room or bedroom setting.

The Artist

HILMA af KLINT

Hilma af Klint (1862 - 1944) was a Swedish artist and mystic who hid some 1200 paintings during her active years and life. 

Klint studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm for five years and lived off the income she made from her more conventional paintings (of portraiture and landscapes) whilst her 'life's work' remained hidden.  The hidden works were inspired by the Theosophical Movement founded by Madame Blavatsky a modernist search for new forms in artistic, spiritual, political and scientific systems, which resembled diagrams and visual representations of complex spiritual ideas which predate the first purely abstract compositions by Wassily Kandinsky.

Hilma Klint specified that her work should be kept secret for at least 20 years after her death. When the boxes were opened at the end of the 1960s, very few people had knowledge of what would be inside.  A considerable body of her abstract paintings were revealed and subsequently celebrated and are now exhibited at the Moderna Museet museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
