Not Comics: Picasso’s hidden imagery
Friday, August 28, 2009
Hey everybody, Frank Santoro here with a “Friday distraction” of sorts. I taught some classes over the summer about classical painting structures and composition as they apply to comics. During the class I often referred to a book entitled Picasso’s Guernica – Images within Images by Melvin E. Becraft. It’s a fascinating read. It’s a “map” to look at Picasso’s most famous painting in a new way.
Not comics, but definitely something to chew on. Enjoy!
The pdf of Becraft’s book is here.
Also, this essay on the subject is interesting as well.
