Despite the enormous interest the painting generated in his lifetime, Picasso obstinately refused to explain Guernica’s imagery. Guernica has been the subject of more books than any other work in modern art and it is often described as…”the most important work of art of the twentieth century”, yet its meanings have to this day eluded some of the most renowned scholars. “Picasso’s Secret Guernica”
A colleague tweeted this link to a video presentation in 3D of Picasso’s Guernica. The video is quite fascinating.
The website provides information about the 3D concept of the video, as well as other background information. There is also a link to the video on the website. However, whenever I attempt to play it from the site, the music skips, causing a choppiness to the video.
In any event, enjoy!
