ARCHITECTURE AS A SYNTHESIS OF THE ART

Relevant to students of architecture, the arts, social science, or anybody seeking deeper spiritual understanding, this collection of key lectures introduces Rudolf Steiner's unique vision of architecture as a synthesis or culmination of the arts. Such an architecture unites sculpture, painting and engraving as well as drama, music and dance - a vital synthesis of all the arts working in cooperation out of a common ideal to awaken each human being to his or her unique self and task in life.

ARCHITECTURE AS PEACEWORK

The First Goetheanum, Dornach, 1914

“We need to create an energetic culture of peace—not idle talk of peace, but the real peace that can arise only out of a concrete, mutual understanding of the various individual cultures.”
—Rudolf Steiner (lecture 2)

ART AS SEEN IN THE LIGHT OF MYSTERY WISDOM

Within the Mystery cultures of ancient history, art, science and religion formed a unity that offered direction and spiritual nourishment to the broader society. Today, art, science and religion can again be reunited. However, as Marie Steiner indicates in her introduction to these lectures, these aspects of our culture need rejuvenation through fresh spiritual understanding and knowledge. Art cannot be renewed through compromise, but only by returning to the spiritual foundations of life. As she says: "The remedy lies in unlocking the wisdom of the Mysteries and presenting it to humanity in a form adapted to contemporary needs."

ART AS SPIRITUAL ACTIVITY

Rudolf Steiner's Contribution to the Visual Arts

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. 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 Michael Howard takes readers through these thought-provoking chapters.

ART HISTORY

as a Reflection of Inner Spiritual Impulses

"I am going to show you a series of reproductions, of slides, from a period in art history to which the human mind will probably always return to contemplate and consider; for, if we consider history as a reflection of inner spiritual impulses, it is precisely in this evolutionary moment that we see certain human circumstances, ones that are among the deepest and most decisive for the outer course of human history, expressed through a relationship to art." —Rudolf Steiner

COLOUR

Building on the achievements of Goethe in his Theory of Colour, Rudolf Steiner shows how colour affects us in many areas of life, including our health, our sense of well-being, and our feelings. Distinguishing between 'image' and 'lustre' colours, he lays the foundation, based on his spiritual-scientific research, for a practical technique of working with colour that leads to a new direction in artistic creativity.

TOWARD A NEW THEORY OF ARCHITECTURE

The First Goetheanum in Pictures

“Yes, we really did try to carry out an architectural program here that was unprecedented, but it had to happen. If others hadn’t dared to do such a thing at various times, there never would have been progress in the evolution of humanity.” —Rudolf Steiner

ART AND HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS

Gottfried Richter

“Gottfried Richter's Art and Human Consciousness is a significant book because it illustrates a way of reading art experientially, whereby the art object is an expression of a particular epoch's human experience and consciousness, particularly in regard to spiritual experience.” —Impressions, 1988

EASTER

Rudolf Steiner's Watercolor Painting

Angela Lord

This marvellous book explores the deep meaning of the watercolour Easter (or "Three Crosses") painted by Rudolf Steiner in April 1924. Living through this book into Steiner's watercolour painting, the reader is led to contemplate the profound mysteries of not only colours and the sense world, but also the divine, cosmic, human invisible reality lying behind them and manifested in the unique event we celebrate as Easter.

THE GOETHEANUM CUPOLA MOTIFS OF RUDOLF STEINER

Paintings by Gerard Wagner

"Along with the architectural and sculptural forms of the double-domed first Goetheanum, the cupola paintings further epitomized the artistic conception of this unique building. The painting motifs extending over the surface of the two cupolas encompassed the evolution of the world as a whole, from its creation by the biblical Elohim to the great epochs of Lemuria and Atlantis that followed. Traversing the post-Atlantean cultural epochs, the beholder was gradually led to the building's central motif: the Mystery of Golgotha as the mid-point of world evolution, with its implications for the future development of the Earth and humanity." - Sergei O. Prokofieff (from his foreword)

THE INDIVIDUALITY OF COLOUR

Contributions to a Methodical Schooling in Colour Experience

Foreword by S.O. Prokofieff

Elisabeth Wagner-Koch

Gerard Wagner

'What is postulated here is not the dogmatic laying down of a way of working. Rather the aim is to make evident one possible means of access to an experience of the colour world... and guide actual practice to Rudolf Steiner's sketch motifs - to their eminent educational power - for we recognize in them a path that can become of great significance to the developing human soul.' - From the Introduction

THE INNER NATURE OF COLOR

Studies on the Philosophy of the Four Elements

J.L Benson

In this fascinating work, J. Leonard Benson describes the spiritual and esoteric nature of color in relation to the four elements-fire, earth, air and water. Based on insights provided by Rudolf Steiner and a deep knowledge of classical cosmology and color theory, this book shows how an understanding of the inner nature of color leads to a completely different view of the world and evolution than is current in our present civilization - one completely at odds with the ruling neo-Darwinian paradigm.

SPIRIT AND ART

Pictures of the Transformation of Consciousness

Van James

Art, originally a part of the secret mystery cults of the ancient world, has become an expression of the individual creative intuition. This richly readable and lavishly illustrated text reveals how human consciousness has evolved through the medium of art. It makes the case for a hidden stream that has put forth art works and art movements throughout history, in an ongoing visible revelation of invisible spiritual currents.
