This chapter explores Winnicott's contribution to our understanding of the image, with particular reference to Gerhard Richter's Mirror. In light of the recent 'turn to Winnicott' in cultural and film studies, it argues for the importance of thinking between Winnicott and Jacques Lacan and for the concept of the mirror as a key starting point for that thinking.
