This paper outlines the thinking of the English psychoanalyst and painter Marion Milner (1900-1998) and examines the issues of creativity and art. Milner, as a result of personal research on the inability to paint, came to believe that the creative artistic process, intended as the creation of new symbols that attribute a personal and subjective meaning to the newly-created reality, occurs during moments of ‘primary madness’ (of illusion of unity, of pre-logical fusion between subject and object) making it possible to have a relationship of reciprocity between internal and external reality. In such a process, the aesthetic experience of the artist at work plays a key role.

Abstract

This paper outlines the thinking of the English psychoanalyst and painter Marion Milner (1900-1998) and examines the issues of creativity and art. Milner, as a result of personal research on the inability to paint, came to believe that the creative artistic process, intended as the creation of new symbols that attribute a personal and subjective meaning to the newly-created reality, occurs during moments of ‘primary madness’ (of illusion of unity, of pre-logical fusion between subject and object) making it possible to have a relationship of reciprocity between internal and external reality. In such a process, the aesthetic experience of the artist at work plays a key role.
