Guernica and Pablo Picasso

  Guernica is a painting by Pablo Picasso. I heard it was created in response to the bombing of Guernica by German and Italian warplanes in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War during my art class in school.

  When I first looked at this picture, I was really astonished by decapitated heads of humans and animals. The floating parts of the bodies created an atmosphere of terror about deaths and violence. It was sad that Guernica showed the tragedies of war and the mental and physical torture it inflicted upon individuals, particularly innocent civilians. I believe that it would become an worldwide anti-war symbol and an embodiment of peace since no one would like to share the same suffering again.

  It is quite interesting that the art work does not include any war heroes. There are only war refugees suffering from indelible scars left by the Spanish Civil War. The painful byproducts of the war were depicted by analytic cubism from various angles. Also, the fine line between objects, the people and the animals, blur the clearness of a picture and make it difficult to comprehend. This is what I think the unique features of cubism are.

   
 
  Pablo Picasso is a representative artist of cubism. I found his works so obscure that I was not able to easily grasp the main points and what he was trying to say through the pictures. I was interested in art so much and I have seen many of his works such as Weeping Woman, Les Demoiselles d' Avigona, and Massacre in Korea. The common thing they shared was that I had difficulty understanding why he used the color here and what object he intended to draw.

  This work is mostly painted with dark blues and grays in color. This has a great influence on making it look gloomy, miserable, and dismal. In the bottom left of the picture, there is a woman holding her dead baby. I thought this resembled the Pieta, a subject in Christian Art depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead baby of Jesus. I felt sad in that there are some people who still need to suffer from the brutal, violent, long-lasting marks of a war.

Guernica and Pablo Picasso

   Guernica is a painting by Pablo Picasso. I heard it was created in response to the bombing of Guernica by German and Italian warplanes in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War during my art class in school.

  When I first looked at this picture, I was really astonished by the decapitated heads of humans and animals. For me, the floating body parts create an atmosphere of terror about death and violence. Guernica is depressing because it shows the tragedies of war and the mental and physical torture it inflicts upon individuals - particularly innocent civilians. I believe it should become a worldwide anti-war symbol or even an embodiment of peace - since no one would like to share in the same suffering again.
