Intimations of Individuation: Jung’s mandala paintings in The Red Book, 1915-20
Diane Finiello Zervas
One of the symbols that emerged in words and images as Jung was working on The Red Book: Liber Novus was the mandala, a protective magic circle wherein the opposites could be held and reconciled. This talk will explore the development of the painted mandalas in The Red Book between 1915, when the mandala first appeared, and 1920, when Jung began to understand its psychological significance as a symbol of the Self.
Diane Finiello Zervas is an Art Historian and Training Analyst with IGAP in private practice in London. She specialises in trauma, and the interface between creativity, analysis and the arts. She has published numerous articles and two major books on Florentine Medieval and Renaissance Art. She is currently interested in Jung’s visual imagery in The Red Book, and her essay on Jung’s mandala sketches, ‘Intimations of the Self’, will be included in a forthcoming book on Jung’s Visual Arts by Norton, scheduled for publication in late 2016.
