Marion Milner (1900-1998) was a distinguished British psychoanalyst, educationalist, autobiographer and artist.Review:
"[This is a book] that has done so much over the years to bring about awareness of the interplay of inner and outer reality in art and in everyday life." – Janet Sayers, from the Introduction.
"By engaging with the creative process through her book, [Milner] comes to appreciate the intrinsic value in the process of painting as a tool for greater self-awareness and engagement with life rather than something separate from living. And this frees her (and all of us who relate to her perspective) from the expectation that each work should be a masterpiece. ... On Not Being Able to Paint highlights the value of the creative process as a vehicle for achieving a transcendent state in which there is a complete loss of self-consciousness and a sense of oneness with the subject matter." - Josie Eastwood
