Guernica

January 23, 2020

“In 1937, in one of the worst civilian casualties of the Spanish Civil War, Fascist forces bombed the village of Guernica in Northern Spain. For Pablo Picasso, the tragedy sparked a frenzied period of work in which he produced a massive anti-war mural, titled “Guernica.” How can we make sense of this overwhelming image, and what makes it a masterpiece of anti-war art? Iseult Gillespie investigates.” A TED-Ed video.

Happy Birthday, Picasso

Spanish artist Pablo Ruiz y Picasso was born on October 25, 1881. Actually, he was baptized “Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Crispiniano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso” but that wouldn’t fit neatly in the corner of a canvas.
