Part of the New Interventions in Art History Series


Psychoanalysis and the Image Transdisciplinary Perspectives by Griselda Pollock

Psychoanalysis and the Image brings together an influential team of international scholars who demonstrate innovative ways to apply psychoanalytical resources in the study of international modern art and visual representation. * Examines psychoanalytic concepts, values, debates and controversies that have been hallmarks of visual representation in the modern and contemporary periods * Covers topics including melancholia, sex, and pathology to the body, and parent-child relations * Advances theoretical debates in art history while offering substantive analyses of significant bodies of twentieth century art * Edited by internationally renowned art historian Griselda Pollock.


With greater clarity than ever, this book articulates the relevance of psychoanalysis for art historical interpretation. The result is a work that must necessarily figure in method and theory courses from now on. Keith Moxey, Barnard College, Columbia University
