Art as Therapy

By Alain de Botton, John Armstrong


The conventional framework of art history, which tells us when, where and by whom an artwork was made, does little to make the case for why art is so important. Passionate, thought provoking, often funny and always accessible, this book reframes art as a therapeutic medium that can guide, console and exhort us, and along the way, help us to understand both art and ourselves better.
