About this work
The Collection comprises two parts: artworks created by Rita Simon's patients during their art therapy session with her and associated archival material comprising patient case files and papers regarding the art therapy profession. This latter set of papers also includes records regarding the British Association of Art Therapists and Northern Ireland Group for Art as Therapy.
The majority of artworks are arranged into "Sequences" and "Styles". "Sequences" contain sets of artworks by specific patients showing the development of their art style according to Simon's theory of styles. "Styles" contain examples of the different styles in Simon's theory.
