Abstract

This paper explores the significance of personalized motifs in Picasso’s Guernica to push back on ideas that the mural is propaganda. Despite his newfound interest in 1930s Spanish politics, Picasso interprets the brutal bombings at Guernica through the perspective of a husband and father, particularly disturbed by the events impact on the innocent women of the Basque town.
