About the Author

Laurie Schneider Adams


The application of psychoanalytic concepts to the interpretation of works of art has been a continual--and continually controversial--intellectual enterprise since Freud's 1910 study of Leonardo. The author, an academic art historian and practicing psychoanalyst, is well qualified to ``present an overview of the interdisciplinary potential of art and psychoanalysis and to demonstrate that each field can enrich and enlarge the other.'' The book is admirably evenhanded, pointing out misinterpretations of both analysts (who generally err by assigning cultural characteristics to personal quirks of artists) and historians (who have often falsely accused psychobiographers of reducing creative genius to mere neurosis). While not a primer of Freudian thought, the book is well within the grasp of the informed lay reader. For academic libraries and public libraries that serve a well-educated clientele.-- Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L, Pullman, Wash.
