The Hidden Order Of Art

Anton Ehrenzweig
Authors:
Anton Ehrenzweig

A revealing study into the relationship between psychology and the arts.Anton Ehrenzweig's tour de force describes nothing less than the psychology of artistic creativity. Focusing on the visual arts and music, he shows that, in addition to conscious, intellectual critical powers, both the child and the creative artist rely on an unconscious, intuitive critical process to give shape to their view of the world.
