Knowledge of higher worlds: Rudolf Steiner's blackboard drawings
University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, 1997 - Art - 133 pages
Rudolf Steiner was the founder of a philosophical movement, Anthroposophy, which was important in the early 20th century, especially in the arts. Mondrian, Kandinsky, Klee, and Beuys all attended his lectures and read his works, and Mondrian became a member of his society. His influence today is perhaps most evident in the Waldorf schools that perpetuate his innovative pedagogical theories.Knowledge of Higher Worlds reproduces drawings Steiner made during his lectures between 1919 and 1924. They appear astonishingly fresh and contemporary, brilliant, gestural, almost abstract designs and diagrams of colored chalk on black paper. Selected from over 1000 drawings that have been preserved, 40 are here reproduced in color along with excerpts from the lectures they accompanied.
