|Rudolf Steiner Weaving Light|
At the turn of the twentieth century a radical spirit
of change began to sweep through the established
forms of visual art. Artists longed to forge new languages
of art working out of pure color and pure form, expressing
the essential, invisible reality of their subjects and not
only an imitation of their outer sensory appearance. Rudolf
Steiner (1861-1925) shared this progressive mood
of absolute reorientation and change among artists in
middle Europe, but he felt that the changes beginning to
manifest required the artist to grow attentive to the world
of the spirit in a newly objective, concrete, and scientific
manner and to develop new means of expression to reveal
something of this world through works of art.
