Neurological Disorders in Famous Artists
Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers, Jan 1, 2007 - Medical - 240 pages
More on the relationship between brain disease and creativity Neurological Disorders in Famous Artists - Part 2' presents more writers, philosophers, musicians, painters and film directors who developed some form of neurological dysfunction and whose style and output changed following a stroke or other cerebral disorder. Mozart, Baudelaire, de Kooning, Proust, F ssli, Heine, Fellini, Visconti and others are all striking examples of how extraordinary creativity can be challenged and modified or destroyed and restored, all within the drama of a disease. When brain disease challenges the capabilities of artists, the changes that subsequently occur in their work provide a unique opportunity to explore the mysteries of creativity. This may also lead to a better understanding on how certain artists developed, particularly when the course of a disease corresponds with what is generally recognized as a new chapter in their work. This book offers a fascinating read for neurologists, psychiatrists, general physicians and anybody interested in art, literature, music and film.
