A creative artworkisthe product ofa close interaction between the unconscious and conscious mind. Artists create their works of art by drawing on their intuitive understanding of the world and the tools and methods at their disposal. This paper studies the genetic criticism and the factors that are most important in shaping this approach.Because of the scope of the debate on this subject, we have narrowed down the theoretical section of this paper to a discussion of Freud’s theory of unconscious. The process of creating works of art is a production of the confluence of three histories inthe artist’smind: (1) the history of the world around the art that forms the collective (un-) conscious of the society and has a significant rolein the formation ofthe unity of the context from which the work emerges; (2) the art history which is vital in the intertextual approaches; (3) the personal history of the artist that forms the individual (un-)conscious and develops the individuality of the work of art.This article looks at the psychological theories that help develop a critical model for interpretation of these three histories in relation to the genesis of an artwork.
