On Not Being Able to Paint

by Marion Milner

forward by Anna Freud

Using psychoanalysis, Marion Milner (1900–1998) utilized art for both self-exploration and self-expression. This book follows her internal process of working through her artistic blocks, and explores how each creative block was also an obstacle in her unconscious mind. Includes B&W illustrations and a color frontispiece, as well as nine appendices covering such topics as rhythm relaxation and the orgasm. 184 pages. 5.75 X 8.75 inches
