Probably Picasso's most famous painting. A republican and anti-fascist, Picasso created this monumental work in 1937, shortly after the German bombing of the Basque town of Guernica. The incongruous shapes, the screaming open mouths of the figures express indignation at the war's fury (which, after all, was yet to come). The figure on the right with outstretched arms refers to Goya's Execution of rebels on May 3, 1808
Prevailing color of this fine art print is b&W and its shape is landscape. Original size is .Pablo Picasso (1881-1973).
The son of a professor of painting, whose work includes the entire pilgrimage of modern painting. He created a new style - Cubism
- which appeared to various degrees in all his works. The spectrum of his paintings is very diverse (at least 40 different creative periods
were identified) and expansive (representing some 35000 pieces
). It is therefore impossible to place Picasso in some imaginary pigeonhole. It makes no sense to name his famous works, there are hundreds of them, but it is worth mentioning probably the most famous: Guernica
(bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War). This painting is a synthesis of all the art periods - Realism
, the blue and pink periods, Cubism, Surrealism, Expressionism,
etc., a cry against the trampling of basic human values that is distinctly timeless and unfortunately still valid today.
