A LECTURE WITH ANDREW LINNELL
Sponsored by Threefold Branch of the Anthroposophical Society in America
The three Masonic ideals of wisdom, beauty, and strength can be found in the Renaissance artists Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Andrew Linnell will explore samples of their paintings in the light of anthroposophy. He will flesh this out with biographical insights from the works of Rudolf Steiner and from his own work.
