More About Guernica By Pablo Picasso
Pablo Picasso, who never mixed art with politics, happened to get inspired by the heavy bombing in the city of Guernica during the Spanish War.
The painting shows the gruesome side of war and the struggles that common people had to go through.
With time it has become a symbol of anti-war and an embodiment of peace across nations.
There is a lot of drama attached to the painting, and it skillfully combines pastoral and epic styles.
The main elements of Guernica remain the bull and the horse. The bull, according to some critics, represents the onslaught of fascism.
If seen from a personal angle, the painting speaks of Picasso’s patriotism and sense of judgment.
He had never visited Spain, his country of birth, for a very long time, but as soon as he heard about the bombing, it shook him to the core.
The result was this beautiful painting of Guernica.
Picasso’s stubbornness to keep the painting at the MET until Spain established a democratic republic says a lot about his emotional connect to his country land.
What’s striking is the use of blacks and whites, as if the artist wanted to take his audience into the realms of darkness that war brings.
There may have been a number of paintings by Picasso, but Guernica remains a moving statement against war.
