EXHIBITION NEWS
PUZZLING DIAGRAM
Information wanted!
Curious?

Our current exhibition ‘Beauty as the imprint of the cosmos’ feautures a large drawing (93×49 cm.) signed by R. Hoffmann, a (German?) artist about whom we know nothing. The diagram shows a spiritual path of man. It is probably anthroposophical in origin. Who can tell us more about the meaning of this diagram, or knows more about the artist or the date of this drawing? The drawing can be viewed in the library until 25 May.
