Picasso's Painting

It was on this day in 1937 Hitler was practicing bombing and wiped out a whole Spain town- the first time in history a town was destroyed from the air.

Pablo Picasso was so torn by the news he painted a picture, calling it 'Guernica', after the town in Spain.

People complain his lack of realism can have no impact. But it is characteristic of Picasso's work that symbols can hold varying meanings from differing eyes, and change according to the state of mind.
