Freud Radio -- All Madness All the Time
That is "The Cry" by Edvard Munch (1863-1944) who suffered from anxiety and alcoholism, his condition described as "verging on madness" before seeking treatment. Louis Wain (1860-1939) famous for his paintings of cats suffered from a progression of psychosis and the cat I used in this collage was painted during the early stages of Wain's affliction. The gent above Freud's head is from a 1930s magazine ad...he looks like he needs some kind of 'help'. For the background I found a full page detail of a painting by Joseph Stella (1877-1946) entitled "Luna Park Abstraction" (1913-14). I felt it had the right "feel" for my elements to be placed on.
