thesis / dissertation description
Artists Louise Bourgeois, Salvador Dalí, and Francisco de Goya were all successful artists who used their varying degrees of anxiety or fear to aid their work. In a survey of their lives, and a brief exploration of their work, one will come to understand the personal events that contributed to the fear-inducing tones of their art. Their willingness to air their personal grievances has given them credibility in the art world to this day.
