About the Author

David Maclagan is an artist, art therapist and university lecturer based in Yorkshire. He has published numerous articles on Outsider art, art therapy and image-based psychology, and is the author of Creation Myths: Man's Introduction to the World (1977), and Psychological Aesthetics: Painting, Feeling and Making Sense (2001).


To celebrate publication of Outsider Art, James Maclagan will be in discussion with James Brett, the curator of the Museum of Everything, at the ICA on 10th February 2010, with Jarvis Cocker as fellow panelist. 'The author guides the reader through this complex debate, building up the historical background and investigating the growth of psychological ideas and psychiatric therapies during the 20th century. His analysis includes an introduction to the principles of art brut as defined by Dubuffet, the evolution of public appreciation, the role of collectors, and the impact of these developments on the artists themselves.' - The Art Newspaper 'a thoughtful, informative and well-researched analysis of an area of art that defies easy classification or study ... he shows that in the struggle for understanding of this complex and contradictory genre there is much to learn about art from the outside edge, and through it, understanding of the art that resides in the mainstream centre.' - The Art Book
