Liane Collot D’Herbois: Work and Life

Liane Collot d’Herbois was a highly gifted artist and an impressive personality – extraordinarily ‘aware’, wise and modest; humorous and clear-thinking, with inner resoluteness and a striking, unique spirituality. Her more than 1700 paintings, the majority of which were composed in accord with a complex veil-layering technique, are now widely dispersed around the world.

This book, published in Switzerland, is an impressive tribute to her life’s work. Printed with both German and English texts, edited by Peter Selg, and containing 205 colour reproductions of her paintings.

About the Author

Liane Collot D’Herbois was born near Tintagel (Cornwall – England) and she lived there until she was twelve. Breathing Celtic culture and tradition and the atmosphere of the place, the colors, particularly the viridian green, the flash of the sunset, it creates the base of her soul as artist and therapist. She studied at the Academy of Arts in Birmingham and she became an art teacher. When she was twenty years old she was awarded a grant for the British Museum in London. She was introduced to anthroposophy by a priest of the Christian Community. As an art teacher she painted with people of all ages and of all ranks and through these experiences she started to perceive that their paintings revealed their constitution, temperament and character. Her meting with Dr. Ita Wegman when she was 21 years old marked the beginning of a friendship and cooperation which will end with Dr. Wegman’s death. She works for 7 years with people mentally handicapped with the curative pedagogy; then, thanks to Ita Wegman who invited her to go to Paris, Arlesheim and Ascona, she starts that personal artistic path which will lead to a completely new painting therapy.
