This study aims to suggest Jung's explanation about autonomy of the unconscious as the base of the therapy through creative art work, and analyze applications of this, Brauner's works, as to establish the theoretical basis of art therapy. This study, defining independency of the unconscious as an idea coming from German Romanticism, starts from understanding the implication of the unconscious, understands Jung's teleological interpretation, and on the basis of this, analyzes its connection with therapeutic possibility that takes the art innate to Brauner's works as a medium. Brauner who was deeply engaged in Jung's concept of the collective unconscious set a dramatic event, the destruction of an eye, as the point of mythification of an individual's destiny, and defined the inner view acquired from loss of external sight as the opportunity of rebirth. He attempted to encounter the mythological archetype through paintings, which means that an individual's destiny is incorporated into the collective incident, and through this, an individual's unstable emotion and morbid aversion can be overcome. The concept of self-realization through Jung's personalization, which signifies rebirth, was visualized through Brauner's creative work, which can provide the theoretical base and practical application of art therapy.
