    Pablo Picasso Guernica 1937. Possibly the greatest piece of art ever and a powerful anti-war statement, showing the bombing of Guernica during the Spanish civil war by Nazi Germany. The suffering is evident throughout. The prominent bull and horse, 2 important figures in Spanish history were used many times by Picasso. The lack of colour heightens the drama and suffering, while impact is also given by the paintings size - 3.5m tall and 8m wide. More here


    Painted in 1937 by #Pablo #Picasso, Guernica was created in response to the bombing of Guernica, a Basque Country village in northern Spain by German and Italian warplanes at the behest of the Spanish Nationalist forces, on 26 April 1937, during the Spanish Civil War. Arguably Picasso’s most famous painting, Guernica stands as a reminder of the tragedies of war, an anti-war symbol, and an embodiment of peace. #art #activism
