Guernica is a painting by Pablo Picasso, in response to the bombing of Guernica, Basque Country, by German and Italian warplanes
at the behest of the Spanish Nationalist forces, on 26 April 1937, during the Spanish Civil War. The Spanish Republican government
commissioned Pablo Picasso to create a large mural for the Spanish display at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques
dans la Vie Moderne (1937) Paris International Exposition in the 1937 World's Fair in Paris.
Guernica shows the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicts upon individuals, particularly innocent
civilians it helped bring the Spanish Civil War to the world's attention.
