The German philosopher Hegel (1770 to 1831) was living in a radical change of time. While reading the book >Hegel’s Welt< by Jürgen Kaube, this picture suddenly arised in my mind.
The red stripe is marking Hegel’s work; it’s the reverse from a supposed dark time into lighter future of consciousness, developing
to enlightening and idealism.
In colors: coming from atrament black, brightness arises by admitting gradually more titanium white; a turmaline green stripe sets a new statement of philosopy, and draws a complentary bow to vernilion red.
