A lavishly illustrated volume of C.G. Jung’s visual work, from drawing to painting to sculpture.
The landmark publication of C.G. Jung’s The Red Book spurred enormous interest in Jung—not just as a founding figure in modern psychology but also as a creative man with tremendous figurative and ornamental flair and a vibrant eye for colour. Expanding beyond that singular achievement, The Art of C. G. Jung presents a comprehensive display of Jung’s creative legacy, exploring through text and image Jung’s encounters with visual art as maker, collector and viewer.
While in his lifetime Jung did not wish to be considered an “artist” and published his visual work anonymously, the images reproduced here demonstrate the attainment of fully realised artistic ambitions. The Art of C.G. Jung beautifully mirrors the intellectual and personal development so renowned in Jung’s writings.
"For a book called The Art of C. G. Jung ever to be published is remarkable and, finally, allows us to present the substantial corpus of Jung's creative work in the context of his intellectual and personal development." — Mind Body Spirit
