About archetypes

Carl Gustav Jung, a pioneering Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, deserves significant praise for his groundbreaking exploration of archetypes. His work in this realm has fundamentally shaped our understanding of the human psyche. Jung delved deep into the collective unconscious, revealing the existence of archetypes as innate, universal patterns that resonate across cultures and history. His dedication to unraveling the profound connections between these archetypal motifs and human experience has enriched psychology, mythology, and our comprehension of the human condition.

Jung’s insights on archetypes not only provide valuable tools for therapists, but also offer artists, including myself, exciting subjects in portrait painting.
