Modern MasterGifs 1 – Guernica – P. Picasso

Guernica (1937) – One of the most moving and powerful anti-war paintings in history.

Painter P. Picasso  – “This bull is a bull and this horse is a horse… If you give a meaning to certain things in my paintings it may be very true, but it is not my idea to give this meaning.”

Alejandro Escalona said, “The chaos unfolding seems to happen in closed quarters provoking an intense feeling of oppression. There is no way out of the nightmarish cityscape. The absence of color makes the violent scene developing right before your eyes even more horrifying. The blacks, whites, and grays startle you—especially because you are used to see war images broadcast live and in high-definition right to your living room.”[17]
