KLEEN, TYRA (Ilustrator) / SCHREINER, OLIVE:
Drömmar (Dreams). Auktoriserad öfversättning från tredje engelska upplagan. Stockholm, C & E Gernandts Förlag, 1897.
. Large 4to (30.3 x 25.5 cm). Pp. 73. With many illustrations by Tyra Kleen. Original half green cloth on paper covered boards, upper cover illustrated, Head of spine with small repair (nicely done), some light stain and discolouration to back cover. First Swedish edition, translated from English by Ingeborg Kleen (Tyra's sister). Scarce. Tyra Kleen was only 22 years old when she made the illustrations for Olive Schreiner's book Dreams. The book contains eleven short stories based on the author's dreams and life on a farm in South Africa. Tyra Kleen was a Swedish artist who spent many years abroad. While studying in Paris, she had her first solo exhibition in 1896. She was truly a symbolist of her time and saw herself as a European artist and a vagabond rather than a Swedish artist. Tyra (af) Kleen (1874-1951) was a Swedish artist, author and women's rights activist who spent several years abroad. While studying in Paris, she had her first solo exhibition in 1896. Between 1898 and 1908 she lived in Rome where she had her own studio. She was greatly influenced by artists such as Bcklin and Puvis de Chavannes and authors as Charles Baudelaire and Edgar Allan Poe. Kleen shared contemporary enthusiasm for spiritualism. She acquired a unique artistic and continental symbolist style such as we don't find with other Swedish artists. In 1919 Kleen travelled to Indonesia where she became particularly fascinated by the ancient theatre tradition and the art of dances in Java and Bali. She published one book about temple dancers in Bali which is included here. At her death, Kleen's collection of paintings, lithographs, drawings, diaries and sketches were given to the Swedish House of Nobility on the condition that the archive would not be opened until 50 years (in 2001) after her death.
