This is my favorite photograph of Rudolf Steiner. The photographer knows how to use lights! This is Rudolf Steiner at the very height of his powers - from 1920. It was accompanied by an article by F. W. Zeylmans van Emmichoven. Here is a quote:

"The eyes recede deeply under the shadow of the heavy brows. One might say that these eyes are dark brown, but that would tell very little of their true nature. How can we describe them? Sometimes they appear unfathomable. One looks into them as into an abyss, standing dazzled at the brink. At other times it is a depth like a dark night, yet their presence is felt. But most of the time the eyes are radiant with a warm light. A golden glow lives in their dark brown color. An infinite goodness speaks out of them: A love for all creatures."
