41. The Case of the Wolf-Man by Sigmund Freud, with art by Jim Dine

The Case of the Wolf-Man by Sigmund Freud, with an introduction by Richard Wollheim and with five etchings and six woodcuts by Jim Dine, 1993.

Slipcase and binding with leather spine, with drawing by Jim Dine.Of Freud's case histories, that of the Wolf-Man, under the title "From the History of an Infantile Neurosis", is the most famous, not only for its importance to the development of Freud's thought but also for the grip upon public imagination that it holds to this day. It was written in the winter of 1914-15, shortly after termination of a treatment that had begun in 1910. The subject, the son of a wealthy Russian landowner, was tormented by a childhood dream of white wolves sitting staring at him from the bare branches of a tree outside his bedroom window in winter. This and other vivid images released by the psychoanalysis are used by Dine. Jim Dine is an artist of international stature. His paintings, sculpture, drawings, and prints are in the collections of major museums throughout the world. The introductory essay by the philosopher and art historian Richard Wollheim reviews the story of the Wolf-Man and considers the significance of this case for Freud, his followers, and critics.
