Peter Stebbing

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1941, Peter Stebbing attended Waldorf Schools in England. Having studied at art schools in Brighton and London, he emigrated to the United States in 1966, continuing his studies at Cornell University and earning the MFA degree in painting in 1968.

While teaching design and color courses over a period of six years at the City University of New York, he began a practical exploration of the scientific color phenomena set forth by Goethe in his color theory. This led eventually to a turning point—the crucial question of finding a correspondingly lawful approach to color in painting.

The new and wholly different training in color experience begun in 1976 with the painter Gerard Wagner on the basis of Rudolf Steiner’s motif sketches, resolved fundamental artistic questions with a coherent and systematic approach. Fully in accord with Goethe’s discoveries and method, this approach may be termed Goetheanistic. Peter Stebbing subsequently established a painting school at the Threefold Educational Foundation in Spring Valley, New York, teaching there from 1983 until 1990. Since 1992 he has been director of the Arteum Painting School in Dornach, Switzerland. He is also the translator and editor of various anthroposophic art publications.
