Luisa Marina Perdigó’s thorough analysis of 27 Part One the key creacionista texts inevitably schematizes the manifestos but does not explore their imagery in detail. Similarly, the analyses of Mireya Camurati and Guillermo Sucre, the best of those studies that cite as needed from several texts in order to reveal general tendencies, do not analyze in context, although they mention and cite, the images from the manifestos.
