Theosophy and the arts

Historical look at the artistic expressions in theosophy


Theosophy, the esoteric order founded c. 1885 by Madame Blavatsky, influenced the arts more than has been appreciated: Wassily Kandinsky, for example, was deeply influenced. Art historian Dr. Sarah Turner opens up a key strand in esoteric art: Theosophical ideas in 19th and 20th-century visual artists in Britain, relating it to international currents and a continued interest in Theosophy by contemporary artists. Sarah Turner is a lively and accomplished speaker who is a world leader in this field; she recently received a Levehulme grant and heads the Enchanted Modernities project. Come be enchanted and enlightened.
