Overview

In Freud's Art – Psychoanalysis Retold Janet Sayers provides a refreshing new introduction to psychoanalysis by retelling its story through art. She does this by bringing together experts from psychoanalysis, art history, and art education to show how art and psychoanalysis illuminate each other.

Freud's Art begins with major founders of psychoanalysis - Freud, Jung, Spielrein and Klein. It then details art-minded developments of their ideas by Adrian Stokes, Jacques Lacan, Marion Milner, Anton Ehrenzweig, Donald Winnicott, and Wilfred Bion before concluding with the recent theories of Jean Laplanche and Julia Kristeva. The result is a book which highlights the importance of psychoanalysis, together with painting and the visual arts, to understanding the centrality of visual imagery, fantasy, nightmares and dreams to all of us, artists and non-artists alike.

Illustrated throughout with fascinating case histories, examples of well known and amateur art, doodles, drawings, and paintings by both analysts and their patients, Freud's Art provides a compelling account of psychoanalysis for all those studying, working in, or simply intrigued by psychology, mental health and creativity today.
