Through compelling prose that balances personal observations within a larger narrative structure John Banville calls "as gripping as any detective story," this book shines new light on Sigmund Freud's own psychological and emotional struggles with masculinity and Jewish identity, while revealing Renaissance master Luca Signorelli's artwork as provocative, destabilizing, and able to speak to us about our deepest memories, fears, and desires. The author, Nicholas Fox Weber, is a well-respected and well-connected art historian. He is an authority on the work of Josef Albers, Le Corbusier, Balthus, and the Bauhaus movement and his reviews and articles have been widely published by prominent newspapers and magazines. Presented in a hardcover edition with sumptuous full-color illustrations, the book provides major shelf appeal at an affordable price point.Publication date will coincide with the Freud's birthday (May 6, 1856).
