This audiobook is a fictionalized account of five real-life extraordinary women in early-twentieth-century Sweden. Led by the forceful af Klint, the group, called De Fem, met regularly to practice drawing artistic inspiration from the spiritual world. Tavia Gilbert provides each woman with a unique voice, ranging from masculine to breathy to nearly hysterical. The exuberant mood shifts dramatically when Pete Cross takes over for the present-day art scene, in which Evan, an earnest, young assistant curator at the Guggenheim Museum, works to research and present a major show of af Klint's work, which has rarely been seen outside Sweden. He taps into the feminist movement while presenting af Klint as the world's first truly abstract painter. J.E.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
