Guernica (8/9)

List item

The image above is a reproduction of the piece originally created by Spanish painter Pablo Picasso in 1937. Picasso is credited as one of the leaders of Cubism, an artistic movement that flaunted distortions of reality and seemingly impossible geometries. Before Guernica was a painting, however, it was a place. Located in northern Spain, the town suffered a destructive Nazi bombing during the Spanish Civil War. Picasso’s piece displays the emotions of fear, disbelief, and agony that come alongside warfare. (Image courtesy of Almudena_Sanz_Tabernero via pixabay)
