Picasso's Guernica - Images within Images (2d edition, 1986 by Melvin E. Becraft) has been removed from the site.
Picasso's Guernica - Images within Images (2d edition, 1986 by Melvin E. Becraft) is now available.
From a perspective of hidden imagery this book takes the reader on a journey aimed at understanding Guernica. It begins with the first hidden images discovered and ends on page 98 with a prediction that Jungian psychology and gnostic thought will play an important part in future analysis of the painting.
From 1986 to late1993 no further analysis of Guernica was undertaken by the author.
Shortly after November 1993 study was resumed by the author after being contacted by Mark Harris, who had discovered an unknown 1934 drawing he claimed to be by Picasso. He titled the drawing, Picasso's Unknown Masterpiece. Over eighty pages of addenda were subsequently published from 1994 to January 2000. Many of these pages strongly support Harris' claim. As predicted, Jungian psychology and gnostic thought play a very important role.
