The convergences between art and psychoanalysis revealed great fascination, but they suffer for an insecure methodology. From the origin, ethical and psychopathological criteria are ambiguously mixed and intertwined, from which misunderstandings arise: that it is madness to generate creativity, that it is possible to decipher the psychopathology of the artist from the work, that creative exercise is itself therapeutic, and that psychoanalysis is not indicated for artists, as it would dry the source of their inspiration. However, despite the ambiguities and limitations of the initiative, between "reductionism" and "niversalism", as psychoanalysts we cannot and do not want to give up continuing to use our specific instruments to interpret the artistic experience in its all changing forms, from the level of consciousness to which the creativity of the artist works, untill the nuclei of private madness with the shared social codes of a certain historical era. The finish line is far away, the works of art retain their mystery; but from surveys on them we can always get a "prize" of knowledge, perhaps in unforeseen directions.
