Concerning the Spiritual: The influence of the Theosophical Society on Australian artists 1890–1934

By Jenny McFarlane

For Australian artists the Theosophical Society was both a mystical and a political project. It was vulnerable to accusations of charlatanry and ridicule but it was also a highly organised body which included many artists who had applied mature educated minds to questioning existing world views and had found them inadequate. Concerning the Spiritual looks at the influence of the Society on Australian artists.
