After being bombed by the Nazi’s for 2 hours and left unrecognizable, Guernica was the centerpiece of an article in the Times. That article would give Picasso the inspiration he needed to finish his commissioned piece on the Spanish Civil War, producing the most powerful and universal symbol against the suffering and devastation of war.

Guernica represents the image of the innocent - composed of women, children, and animals - portrayed on a monumental (and almost) monochromatic canvas to intensify its drama and using special paint to have the least possible gloss, to look like a war portrait. Simple and powerful: like we aimed our creation to be.
