This description of the psychology of artistic creativity, focusing on the visual arts and music, shows that, in addition to conscious, intellectual critical powers, both the child and the creative artist rely on an unconscious, intuitive critical process to give shape to their view of the world.

From the Inside Flap:

"One of the most intelligent books ever written about the psychology of artistic creativity. . . . as relevant to the present situation of psychology as it is to the present situation of art."--John Russell, The Sunday Times (London) "In his remarkable study he has evolved an altogether new psychology of the artist and the art-work which accounts particularly for the development, significance, possibilities and limitations of modern abstract art."--The Times Literary Supplement
