About this work

Description

Dr Alan McGlashan was a well-known Jungian analyst who had himself been analysed by Carl Gustav Jung in the 1930s. He was also a poet, philosopher, broadcaster and historian of psychoanalysis. His sessions with his patients involved elaborate preparation both by himself and by them: they were often asked to prepare a written text about their dreams, but in the case of one patient he adopted a different strategy. This patient was a professional artist, and was therefore asked to produce drawings of dreams instead. The present drawings were the result. They can be seen to show much scope for analytical discussion between patient and analyst: there are roads, paths and railways, some of which pass though open spaces while others are blocked and others again interact with other routes at a different level, representing complexities that needed resolution
