9780064302975: Art And Psychoanalysis

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.

From the Back Cover:

"One of the most fascinating art historical works that I have read in years.... The book is filled with fresh, scholarly insight, and observations of various aspects of art and psychobiography that will be new to art historians.." -- Paul Barolsky, Professor of Art History, University of Virginia.

"Informative, clearly written, closely argued, stimulating, and in fact, quite fascinating.  It is a pioneering contribution to the fields of art history and of psychoanalysis... Though serious in substance the book is remarkably easy to read and understand.
 ---- Larissa Bonfante,  Professor Emerita of Classics, New York University

From the Inside Flap:

Students of art history have become increasingly interested in new methodologies, and this book serves as an introductory guide to the interactions of the two disciplines in western art.  Because so few people have been trained in both fields, there has been little reliable material available on the subject..... There are chapters on Freud's Leonardo Controversy, art and the oedipus complex, dreams, delusions, Michelangelo's Moses, the mother-child relationship, the primal scene, psychobiography, and aesthetics.
