The book

The volume celebrates Luigi Pericle, painter, thinker, writer, scholar of theosophy and esoteric doctrines. It reveals his extraordinary history, made of profound explorations and outstanding encounters. From the acclaimed collector Peter G. Staechelin to Sir Herbert Read, trustee of the Tate Gallery; from museologist Hans Hess, curator of the York Art Gallery, to famous German artist and filmmaker Hans Richter. They were all attracted by his charisma, his multifaceted personality, his ‘clairvoyant’ art. With Luigi Pericle, the history of Art Informel in the years following World War II opens up unexpectedly to philosophy, alternative spirituality, the mysteries of the cosmos against the background of the space age.
