Twelve Lectures

Rudolf Stiener



In these lectures, Steiner begins with Goethe’s Theory of Color, and discusses how moral effect of color upon human beings. He focuses particularly on the effect of color on human feeling and upon the health and well-being of the observer. Steiner lays the foundation for a practical technique for working with color based on the distinction between “image” and “luster” colors. It is this technique that paved the way for a new direction in the visual arts. Colour is the most comprehensive compilation in English of Steiner’s insights into the nature of color, painting and artistic creation. A truly seminal work that is also fascinating to read.
