Jungian aesthetics

The theories of art proposed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) are concerned with the artist’s use of archetypes, either consciously or unconsciously.

His assumption was that all artists are driven to creativity (which he deemed feminine) by their involvement with the Mother archetype. The experience of Jungian analysis prompted American painter JACKSON POLLOCK (1912-1956) to create a series of drawings which were subsequently published.
