Looking at excerpts of Grace Pailthorpe and Reuben Mednikoff’s manuscript Psychorealism: the Sluicegate of the Emotions, this reading group will set them in the context of modernist and psychoanalytic attempts to diagnose and combat the rise of fascism.


A Tale of Mother’s Bones tells the remarkable story of a unique artistic and personal collaboration. After meeting at a party in 1935, Dr. Grace Pailthorpe (1883–1971), a trained surgeon, and Reuben Mednikoff (1906–1972), an artist and designer, began collaborating on a project that would bring together art, writing and psychoanalysis in an attempt to create a better society.
