Pablo Picasso, 1937
In protest of war and violence.
Currently displayed in the Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid, Guernica is an enormous painting that reminds one of newspaper reporting. The actual color is more brown than black. Notice the mother wailing at the loss of her child. See the flames and feel the suffering. Speak up against Israel's relentless bombing of Gaza. It's too much and it's gone on for too long.
