Art as Therapy
Available in Stock
The modern world thinks of art as something very important, yet many people leave galleries feeling confused. What is art for? This book proposes that it has a therapeutic purpose, and can help us overcome our doubts and inadequacies. Illustrated with hundreds of full-colour reproductions of works of art from all eras, it identifies seven areas – remembering, hope, sorrow, rebalancing, self-understanding, growth and appreciation – in which art can help us come to terms with our feelings.Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
