Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 20th Century artist, Hermann Linde [German, 1863-1923] Link: Hermann Linde (1863–1926) was a classically trained German painter who was born and raised in Lübeck. He is the brother of the patron of the arts and art collector Dr. Max Linde. As early as 1904, he developed a relationship with Rudolf Steiner, who encouraged him to create a form of artistic expression for those on a spiritual path. Inspired by his experiences with Steiner's ideas, Linde dedicated his artistic work to Anthroposophy. He participated in the creation of the stage sets for Steiner's first mystery drama, The Portal of Initiation, performed in Munich in 1910. Later, during World War I, he helped paint the cupolas in the First Goetheanum.
