This volume shows impressively how the young artists individually explored this role model and thereby developed their own individual style.

Georgiana Houghton - Hilma af Klint - Emma Kunz
Abstract paintings were being produced even before Kandinsky. Completely independently from each other, Georgiana Houghton (1814–1884) in England, Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) in Sweden and Emma Kunz (1892–1963) in Switzerland developed an individual, abstract pictorial language. What they had in common was a desire to make visible the laws of nature, the intellect and the supernatural. Their works are being presented side by side for the first time in an exhibition.

The Artistic Dress in 1900 in Fashion, Art, and Society
