“All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the
morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous
people, For they dream their dreams with open eyes, And make them come
true.”
D.H. Lawrence

ALFRED KUBIN ~ DYING

in Art & the Unconscious Mind by

“Sterben (Dying),” circa 1899

The Austrian artist Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) began his career just as Freud released “The Interpretation of Dreams.”

Accordingly, the Neue Galerie’s “Alfred Kubin: Drawings, 1897-1909” is replete with the terrors of the freshly analyzed psyche.
