This study attempts to understand artistic madness in psychiatric literature from the 1850s until the end of the century. Gros describes the passage from the paranoid writer to the schizophrenic artist, the invention of the political dimension of an art-madness synthesis, the emergence and transformation of cultural relationships: artist-crazy-primitive-child.
