Quote from the website of the Guggenheim Museum :   

In fall 2018, the Guggenheim Museum will present the first major solo exhibition in the United States of the work of pioneering artist Hilma af Klint (1862–1944), a long under-recognized innovator of abstract art.

af Klint had begun producing nonobjective paintings by 1906, significantly before Vasily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian, and others widely considered trailblazers of the movement to free artwork of representational content.

The bold color palettes and expansive formats af Klint frequently used were also like little else that had been seen before.

Exposed works :

167 paintings and 7 notebooks of the Hilma af Klint Foundation collection :
