Hilma af Klint createdThe Ten Biggest No.7 Adulthood in 1907 as part of her famous large scale abstract series named The Ten Biggest which was Klint's visual study of the four ages of man from a spiritual perspective. The No. 7 painting is meditative, like an ancient geometric pattern of Buddhist origin. This reproduction is composed of free flowing forms of different sizes and colours; red, green, yellow, light blue and white set against a lilac background, transversed by diagrammatic lines. The large central yellow form is reminiscent of a bloom emerging from a bulb, with circumventing shapes and lines - enriched by the etherial words and scripted letters to further establish levels of symbolism and metaphorical understandings. These elements all combine to create a captivating piece stepped in futurism and complex spiritual ideas representing af Klint's perspective of a microcosm of life - Adulthood.

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.
