DESCRIPTION: This painting is about the bombing
of Guernica. It explains who was in charge of the operation and the
methods they used to attack Guernica, a city in the Spanish Basque
Country. It was ordered by the Spanish Segunda Republica to represent
Spain in the Paris World Exhibit, in 1937. The size and the colors used by
the artist clearly depict the horror of the Spanish Civil War.
Pablo Picasso was probably the most famous artist of the twentieth century. During his artistic career, which
lasted more than 75 years, he created thousands of works, not only paintings but also sculptures, prints, and
ceramics, using all kinds of materials. He almost single-handedly created modern art. He changed art more
profoundly than any other artist of this century. First famous for his pioneering role in Cubism, Picasso continued to develop his art with a pace and vitality
comparable to the accelerated technological and cultural changes of the twentieth century. Each change
embodied a radical new idea, and it might be said that Picasso lived several artistic lifetimes.
Pablo Picasso died on April 8, 1973 in Mougins, France at the age of 91.
