The Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) is today seen as a pioneer of abstract art. After studying at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts in the 1880s, Hilma af Klint established herself as a landscape and portrait painter in Stockholm. In the autumn of 1907, she began the first painting in the series The Ten Largest.
