The artistry of Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) continues to fascinate. Her abstract painting was well ahead of its time, and when her paintings were first shown 20 years after her death, they attracted considerable attention. She is now regarded as a progenitor in abstract art.

The stamps in the booklet show five of her paintings that are included in the series “the ten largest”, no. 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7. The paintings describe the life course of man from childhood to old age.
