Guernica Overview:

Created as an anti-war protest piece in response to the 1937 aerial bombing of a small town in northern Spain, Guernica quickly became one of Pablo Picasso’s most-recognized Cubist paintings—and for very good reason. Its monochromatic color palette, intense contrast, and large, violent images are visceral, compelling, and unforgettable even today. . . for those who saw it in 1937, with international tensions running high and World War II looming on the horizon, Guernica struck home like a bolt of lightning.

The genius of Guernica is that it successfully combines dreamlike (some might say nightmarish) elements of Surrealism with the multiple perspectives of Cubism. It was a shocking painting, both for its modern, Cubist style and for its haunting subject matter. After being displayed at the 1937 World’s Fair in Paris, Guernica went on a two-year “world tour” to encourage anti-fascist sentiment and raise funds for the troops of the Spanish Republic.

About Artist:

Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973) was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Most art historians would say the MOST influential. His ingenious use of form, color, and perspective profoundly impacted later generations of painters. Artists such as Willem de Kooning and David Hockney. “There are artists who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun,” he once said.

Born October 25, 1881 in Málaga, Spain, Pablo Picasso’s name was unique. His name is more a sentence, Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispín Crispiniano María de los Remedios de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso. His prodigious talent was cultivated early on by his father the painter Jose Ruíz Blasco. Picasso then attended the Royal Academy of San Fernando in Madrid, Barcelona shortly before settling in Paris in 1904. His works or derivatives of his works are in every museum of any note in the world.
