Likely Picasso’s most famous work, Guernica is certainly the artist’s most powerful political statement. The work was painted as an immediate reaction to the Nazi’s devastating casual bombing practice on the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War; unremorsefully displaying the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicted upon individuals, especially innocent civilians. By using a palette of gray, black, and white, Picasso immediately evokes a serious tone and emulates the cover of newspapers published after the bombing
