Popular esoteric movements of the 19th and early 20th centuries, such as Spiritualism and Theosophy, provided a number of women artists with new avenues of creative expression. This lecture will focus on their attempts to chart new spiritual territories utilizing innovative visual strategies. Some of the artists to be examined are the British medium Georgiana Houghton, Swiss healer Emma Kunz, Swedish Theosophist Hilma af Klint, and the American visionary Agnes Pelton.
