This is an ink wash commission that I did for a Psychologist Client who runs her practice in Halifax, Canada. Was a lot of fun to do, as it involved researching famous psychologists, mainly during the same period, and what their theories were. The challenge was to create a setting, which was telling of what each one was famous for. Starting from the left corner and going clockwise, we have Hermann Rorschach who was famous for the ink blot test. There there was Ivan Pavlov who was famous for his work in classical conditioning where he conditioned dogs to associate a bell ring with food. Everytime he introduced food to the dog, they would salivate, and at the same time he would play a bell. Eventually, the dog would just salivate to the sound of the bell! (association). Then there is Jean Piaget, famous for his work on Child Development. Next is Aaron T. Beck who is famous for Cognitive Therapy and studying depression. Next is Sigmund Freud, famous for psychoanalysis, and behind him is his disciple who later turned away from him, Carl Jung. Lastly, sitting on the floor is B. F. Skinner who is famous for Operant Conditioning used to study animal behaviour.
