Picasso was a man of great passion who greatly opposed Franco and his government. It was his horror after learning what had happened in Guernica which prompted him to create the mural.

This outstanding book Author: Alain Serres. Understanding Picasso: A Look Into Guernica This week we bring our focus around to Pablo Picasso’s masterfully painted mural entitled “Guernica”. This is a special and unique painting that stands out amongst the rest of Picasso’s body of work, because it belongs in a category known as Narrative Art.

Guernica is a mural-sized oil painting on canvas by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso completed in Juneat his home on Rue des Grands Augustins, in Paris.

The painting, which uses a palette of gray, black, and white, is regarded by many art critics as one of the most moving and powerful anti-war paintings in history. Picasso's mural was a memorial to the victims of the bombing of Guernica--the trial run of a Nazi tactic now used by militaries world-wide: demoralizing the populace by taking out civilians rather than military targets.

Within weeks of the bombing, Picasso painted the horror of this senseless attack in shades of gray on an 11' x 25' canvas.5/5(5). Picasso's artistic genius was clear from childhood.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in art and social history. Although Guernica was painted almost 80 years ago, its lessons and implications can still be seen today in places like Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, etc/5.

Picasso and Truth offers a breathtaking and original new look at the most significant artist of the modern era. From Pablo Picasso’s early The Blue Room to the later Guernica, eminent art historian T. J. Clark offers a striking reassessment of the artist’s paintings from the s and s.

Why was the space of a room so basic to Picasso’s worldview? Pablo Picasso mainly painted things from his life–woman, children, still-life painting, etc. He rarely made political statements or painted stories.

When the bombing of Guernica happened, Picasso was forced to take action (check out this amazing zen pencils comic about it here) and used his art to make a statement.The Spanish Pavilion's main attraction, Picasso's Guernica, is a sober reminder of the tragic events in Spain.

Initial reaction to the painting is overwhelmingly critical.
