The first painter to devote herself entirely to abstract art, Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) created a body of work that has only recently begun to be appreciated for its visionary intensity and innovation. "The Legacy of Hilma af Klint" reproduces in its entirety a previously unknown 1920 notebook by af Klint. Titled "Blumen, Moose, Flechten" [Flowers, Mosses, Lichen] on the front cover, this notebook lays out the artist's occult geometric extrapolations of nature, in diagrams and handwritten commentary (in German). The second part of this volume gathers responses to af Klint's work (visually and in essays) by nine contemporary artists: Cecilia Edefalk, Karl Holmqvist, Eva Lofdahl, Helen Mirra, Rebecca Quaytman, Amy Sillman, Fredrik Soderberg, Sophie Tottie and Christine Odlund. The book is published on the occasion of af Klint's inclusion in the 2013 Venice Biennale.
