Guernica, Picasso, 1937


"Guernica was the first city to be deliberately targeted and destroyed by aerial bombing.

The majority of those killed were the elderly, women and children."


"It has become for people around the world visceral, visual evidence of the true nature of war, a perspective very unlike

the heroic and optimistic one so often presented by politicians who have never seen war close at hand."
