Art as Spiritual Activity Rudolf Steiner's Contribution to the Visual Arts
$ 24.95 USD
This book introduces a new way for thinking about, creating, and viewing art. Rudolf Steiner saw his task as the renewal of the lost unity of science, the arts, and religion; thus, he created a new, cognitive scientific and religious art in anthroposophy. The implications of his act —recognized by such diverse artists as Wassily Kandinsky and Joseph Beuys —are only now coming fully to light.
In his thorough introduction of more than a hundred pages, Michael Howard takes readers through these thought-provoking chapters:
