She was a Swedish artist and mystic. She lived from 1862-1944. Her work is being shown at the Guggenheim in NY. Her history is very interesting but as a woman artist she never received much recognition. She produced abstract expressionist paintings several years before Kandinsky and Mondrian. The huge paintings she produced representing the human life cycle were 80 square feet each!
“the show — perhaps the most mind-altering, historically significant event of the year in art — is more interesting than even its headline.”
