Here are few facts about Pablo Picasso‘s Guernica, one of the most famous artists’ paintings

  1. If you look closely, you will notice that the protagonists of Guernica are women, perhaps because women represent life and pain. A woman screaming with her dead child in her arms shows the pain, and in another painting, a woman holding a lamp signifies hope.
  2. Ironically, in the year 1990, this anti-fascist art was used as a recruitment advertisement by the Germans.
  3. Pablo Picasso refused to give any explanation on the strong symbolism present in Guernica.
