Genre:
New Image

Guernica is a very large 1937 oil painting on canvas by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. It is regarded as one of the most moving and powerful paintings in history. It portrays the suffering of people and animals wrought by violence and chaos.

 

It is a very complex painting with images that convey the story in subtle detail. Our speaker, Gijs van Hensbergen (a world expert on Picasso and biographer of Gaudi) has made a special study of the painting and its subject. Haslemere Museum, £5
