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. Color 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.
