Article on Picasso's art by Jung

The last article in the book ( Jung: The Spirit in Mn, Art and Literature )on Picasso is interesting. Though Jung does not talk about the artistic aspect of his art, he elaborates the psychology underlying his creativeness. He makes a comparative study of the visual expressions of neurotics and schizophrenics with the art of Picasso. According to him Picasso belongs to the latter group, (not that he suffers from schizophrenia)the main charecteristic of which is fragmentation and such visual expressions contain psychic fault lines. "The picture leaves one cold, or disturbs one by its paradoxical, unfeeling and grotesque unconcern for the beholder."
