Guernica was Picasso’s reaction of the Nazi’s bombings in the town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. It has become a “perpetual reminder of the tragedies of war, an anti-war symbol, and an embodiment of peace” (“Guernica”). Shabi states this war painting visually shows the viewers the destruction and chaos of civilian’s lives. Picasso has quoted about this painting as he said, “My whole life as an artist has been nothing more than a continuous struggle against the reaction and the death of art. In the picture, I am painting-which I shall call Guernica-I am expressing my horror of the military caste which is now plundering Spain into an ocean of misery and death.” (Shabi). At the Paris World’s Fair, Guernica became a centerpiece of the Spanish pavilion (“Pablo Picasso”). Guernica illustrates the dehumanization of humanity and shows the similarities humans and animals both share: fear and death.
