This new hardcover annual offers a unique scholarly format, an
interdisciplinary dialogue that, it is hoped, will foster the
development of a sound, useful methodology for applying
psychoanalytic insight to art and artists. The series provides a
medium for those who study art, those who interpret it, and
occasionally those who create it, formally to explore the meaning
of an artistic work as the direct reflection of the inner world of
its creator. Within each volume, individual topics are addressed by
either an art historian or a psychoanalyst, with a response
frequently tendered by an expert from the other field. Reviews of
important books of cross-disciplinary interest are treated in a
similar manner, and include rebuttals by the authors themselves. It
is precisely this exchange of ideas among scholars with difference
perspectives on the meaning of a work of art that sets PPA apart
from the standard art history publication. Its depth of
scholarship, coupled with its innovative format, make it a
fascinating addition to the burgeoning field of psychoanalytic
studies of art history.
