Pablo Picasso - Guernica (1937)
Pity and terror. Picasso's path to Guernica
The news of the bombardment of the Basque town of Guernica by German planes during the Spanish Civil War was the inspiration that set Picasso to work on Guernica, the picture that transcended the specific historical moment to which it refers to become the great icon of the twentieth century. Following retrospectives in which Guernica was exhibited in relation to its historic context and in direct dialogue with other works from the history of painting, a broad overview is now offered of the conditions that made the work possible through the work produced by Picasso in the course of the previous decade. From that year on, the canvas motivated political discussion around the world. Critics close to Stalinism reproached the painter for the pessimism of a work that did not fall within the category of popular art, while other voices on the left denied its demoralizing qualities by appealing to a complexity that propaganda-minded critics were far from being able to understand. Differences of opinion in the artistic realm have also given rise to controversies. Some regard it as a formal failure, while others see it as a key work in the history of art.
