Review by:
A. Giannakoulas

This insightful collection charts the development of forty-four productive years of clinical work and gives a wide and exhaustive view of the basic field of the author. The introduction with her afterthoughts adds a further biographical dimension to the presentation of the clinician as well as the artist.

Marion Milner was a 'professional' naturalist and artist from her earliest youth, with a permanent record of natural appearances. She began as an observer of surfaces with a real concern to increase her knowledge of the physical world by observation, comparison and analysis, yet her pre-analytic books (published under the name of Joanna Field) testify an extraordinary understanding of the delicate and complex movements, the smooth transitions of the essential which lies beneath and orders the trivial. In her drawings she displays in allegorical guise the struggle of light and darkness, good and evil, past and present, where her concern with human nature is revealed in carefully individualized figures and lively characterizations.
