Art and Psychopathology: The Message of Outsider Art.
Esman, Aaron H.
American Journal of Art Therapy, v27 n1 p13-21 Aug 1988
The relationship between art and mental illness is examined in the untrained "outsider artist," one whose style, though highly idiosyncratic, conforms to certain formal criteria and is usually initiated at a time of intense psychic crisis. Photographs and discussions of the paintings and sculptures of psychotic artists are presented. (JW)
