    Hey guys! I could really do with some help please

    My girlfriend is studying Psychology at uni and has been doing or read about a certain case study that she's very interested in.

    The case study in question, is about a man, who is only known from the initials JS, who painted St Mark's Square in Venice. And i think painted it from memory, whilst suffering from a mental disorder, I think dementia, but either way it's meant to be pretty good and she likes it. But that's all I have to go on.

    So I'd like to find it and get it as a framed picture and surprise her for her birthday. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated!!

    Many thanks

    Something that sounds like this is cited here: http://s3.amazonaws.com/academia.edu..._and_aphas.pdf

    "The detailed description by Meyer [7] of his patient
    J. S. provides a very good example of the approach takenby the authors of the early twentieth century. Case J. S.presented aged 55 years with a profound personalitychange including apathy, loss of interest in his environment,“stubbornness”, “obstinacy”, pathological greedand an obsessive tendency to hoard things...."

    However the references are in a different language so I haven't been able to get any further!
