'Psychoanalysis and the Image brings together an influential team of international scholars to use psychoanalytical resources in the study of international modern art and visual representation. Beginning with a substantial introduction by the editor, the volume covers a range of psychoanalytic concepts, including melancholia, trauma, sexuality, the dream, and femininity.' - from back cover.

This publication aims to bring forward methodologies of art history and put theoretical perspectives of histories of art in practical terms. It also advances close readings of artworks and visual representations and articulate such readings in psychoanalytic rhetoric. Some essays trace how psychoanalysis is informed by visual means and imaginaries, while some offer analyses of important artists. 

Includes a bibliography and an index.

Please note that only Asian artists who have been substantially discussed in the volume are indexed.
