26 APR: Guernica is one of the best-known paintings in the world. Spanish artist Pablo Picasso said that his great work means what each person sees in it, but critics and experts have tried to fathom a deeper meaning to each of its elements. On the 80th anniversary of the bombing of the Basque town of Gernika (Guernica in Spanish) which inspired the painting, we ask an expert to interpret the great work. According to Rosario Peiro, Head of Collections, Reina Sofia Museum, Guernica is notable as a departure from earlier military-themed art – it does not celebrate victory, but shows the drama and suffering of a people, a work in which the heroism is human pain and suffering.
