Freud & Art

Date: January 30, 2018

Italian Renaissance painting, almost more than anything else Freud experienced in his daily life, brought on some of his most intense personal reactions. This event will focus on Freud's letters and little-known reflections on art he saw in the early years of his life, more than his better-known psychoanalytic approach to the lives and work of Leonardo Da Vinci and others. In particular, the panelists will evoke pictures by Titian, Botticelli, and Luca Signorelli, all of which deeply moved Freud, as well as his analysis of the Hans Holbein painting he saw in Dresden. They will also take a look at Meyer Shapiro’s views on Freud’s experience of, and writing about, art.

More details coming soon.
