This overview of art and psychoanalysis shows how each field can enrich and enlarge the other. The book discusses the ways in which psychoanalytic insights can explain art and creativity, some of the quarrels between art historians and psychoanalysts, and applies psychoanalytic readings to works of art and artists, from iconographic, textual, biographical and aesthetic points of view.
