Art as Therapy
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.
