David Zwirner has announced that Hilma af Klint’s Tree of Knowledge, 1913–1915, has been acquired by Glenstone Museum. This series, which comprises eight works, was on view at David Zwirner’s 34 East 69th Street location in New York from November 4, 2021, to January 29, 2022, and will be on view at David Zwirner’s London gallery from March 2 to April 2, 2022, before going to its permanent home in Maryland.
“We had a wonderful experience showing Tree of Knowledge to our New York audiences this fall, breaking all previous attendance records at our space on 69th Street. I am especially excited that I can now present these rare works in London, where Hilma af Klint’s work was actually discovered earlier than in New York. A major presentation in London was at the Serpentine Galleries in 2016.” David Zwirner
Though little known during her lifetime and for decades after, Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) has come to be recognized as one of the most important and inventive artists of the twentieth century. When she began making vibrant, symbolic paintings as early as 1906, her work was radically unlike anything that had come before and preceded the abstract work of artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, and Kazimir Malevich by several years.
