About this title

Synopsis:

Building on the achievements of Goethe in his Theory of Colour, Steiner shows how color has an objectively moral affect on the feeling life, and even the health and well-being of the observer. Distinguishing between "image" and "luster" colors, Steiner lays the foundation for a practical technique for working with color that leads to a new direction in artistic creativity.This volume is the most comprehensive compilation in English of Steiner's insights into the nature of color, painting and artistic creation. A valuable source of reference and study not only for artists but for anyone interested in gaining an appreciation of art as a revelation of spiritual realities.

About the Author:

Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) was born in the small village of Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia), where he grew up. As a young man, he lived in Weimar and Berlin, where he became a well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known especially for his work with Goethe’s scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings. The influence of Steiner’s multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, various therapies, philosophy, religious renewal, Waldorf education, education for special needs, threefold economics, biodynamic agriculture, Goethean science, architecture, and the arts of drama, speech, and eurythmy. In 1924, Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world. He died in Dornach, Switzerland.
