Melanie Klein is one of the founding figures of psychoanalysis. In her lifetime, she was a controversial and powerful figure and her legacy has spread worldwide. Here is a comprehensive review of the many attempts to portray this elusive and complex woman, including the work of painters, sculptors, and portrait photographers. Its genesis was an article commissioned by the Melanie Klein Trust after a pair of delicate low relief sculptures of Klein by Oscar Nemon were re-discovered after eighty years in hiding. During his research, Roger Amos uncovered much material on depictions of Klein, including the fact that she had destroyed two significant works of art: a bust, also by Nemon, and a portrait by William Coldstream. What had driven her to destroy these representations of herself? Why did others survive? The complex and interrelated reasons are identified and discussed alongside the history of each artistic project, locating them in a narrative of Klein’s life. Through an understanding of the subject/artist relationship, Amos illuminates Klein’s professional life in a new, intriguing, and enjoyable approach. A must-read for all scholars and professionals in the fields of psychoanalysis and portraiture, plus those with an interest in Melanie Klein or aesthetics.

In her apron and rubber gloves, a smile lipsticked permanently across her face, the woman of the Fifties has become a cultural symbol of all that we are most grateful to have sloughed off. A homely compliant creature, she knows little or nothing of sex, and stands no chance at all of having a career. She must marry or die. But what if there was another side to the story? In this book Rachel Cooke tells the story of ten extraordinary women whose pioneering professional lives - and complicated private lives - paved the way for future generations. Muriel Box, film director. Betty Box, film producer. Margery Fish, plantswoman. Patience Gray, cook. Alison Smithson, architect. Sheila van Damm, rally car driver and theatre owner. Nancy Spain, journalist and radio personality. Joan Werner Laurie, editor. Jacquetta Hawkes, archaeologist. Rose Heilbron, QC. Plucky and ambitious, they left the house, discovered the bliss of work, and ushered in the era of the working woman.
It is the realisation that a lifetime of reportage can come together in an utterly
coherent body of work , all informed by the same humanity ... You could look at

must be the two most physically anonymous photographers of their generation .

"As the distinguished photographic historian Peter Hamilton points out in his Introduction, there is a recurring humanistic element in Denis Thorpe's work, but it is his pictorialism that often comes to the fore, his ability to frame a composition with inherent beauty. Although he has worked all over the world on assignments, this book has concentrated on his work in the British Isles. Over the years, he has created a portrait of his own country that is beautifully presented in this book and in the exhibition that it accompanies." "The people are here portrayed with both humour and compassion, as are their cityscapes and their countryside. Beginning with his early portrayal of his family and their home in Mansfield and ending with remarkable images of pastoral beauty, this book creates a pictorial essay framed by a sympathetic eye with extraordinary sensitivity and skill."--BOOK JACKET.
