May we be guided by Truth May we have Beauty revealed to us & may it result in the Good “All those possessing even a small share of good sense always call upon the Divinity at the outset of any undertaking, small or great; therefore we, who are proposing to present a discourse concerning the universe, must invoke the Gods and Goddesses, praying that all we say may be approved by them in the first place, and second by us.

Drawing Lesson with Rudolf Steiner, A & The Geometry of Shadow Movements

By: BEMELEN & BARAVALLE

Price: $11.00

Publisher: Mercury Press:

Seller ID: 7615


When a child draws an object of nature, a tree, or a rock, for example, the child is experiencing nature itself. If solid, unbroken lines are used to represent the object, perception is fixed on something which isn’t really there. In reality, we perceive visual images as gradations of shade and color, never as the distinct outlines we commonly use to draw with. The techniques given in these two lessons allow a child to have a different and truer relationship to the physical world. [When referring to this item please quote our ID 7615] View more info

The Inner Nature of Color will be of interest to artists, art historians... View more info

In the Renaissance world, artists and architects often composed their canvasses and buildings according to numerical and musical harmonies. Many major poets, including Dante, Spenser and Milton, did the same in their work. Shakespeare's poems have been analysed for their numerology, but surprisingly his plays have not. Sylvia Eckersley had studied scene-symmetry in Shakespeare's plays, and was struck by the exact middle lines of Macbeth as numbered on a First Folio edition: See they encounter thee with their harts thanks Both sides are euen: heere Ile sit i'th' mid'st View more info

"In the different arts ... we are presented with different languages that give expression to certain truths living in the human soul. They are often the most secret truths, the most secret knowledge, which cannot readily be reduced to rigid concepts nor clothed in abstract formula, but seek artistic expression." Rudolf Steiner, 29th April 1909. Raphael’s paintings of the Madonna express secret truths. Rudolf Steiner described the healing effects of Raphael’s Madonnas in August 1908, and between 1908 and 1911 he directed Dr. Felix Peipers to arrange fifteen images a... View more info
