Today’s entry is also about a painting. Picasso painted “Guernica” in 1937. Guernica was bombed by the Germans during the Spanish Civil war and everything in the city was completely obliterated. This painting is extremely abstract. Many different animals, and objects are shown in this painting and at first it does not seem to make sense. On the left of the painting there is a women crying as she is holding what could possibly be her baby. The lighting is also abstract. In the top of the painting there is a light bulb which should be lighting the whole painting but the painting is still dark.  The darkness shows the sadness and grief after the bombing. I do not interpret art, I just like looking at the painting.
