Abstract

Artists with neurological diseases sometimes produce remarkably appealing art. Here we present the art of a patient with Parkinson’s disease, who demonstrated remarkable creativity and productivity well into the course of his disease. Despite his manifest motor impairments, he produced paintings and drawings with fluid sinuous movements. He also became preoccupied with his art in an unprecedented way, raising the possibility that his disease and medications were contributing to his creative drive.
