Guernica is often called the single most important work of the 20th century. Painted shortly after German planes, acting on orders from Francisco Franco, bombarded the Basque town of Guernica on April 26, 1937, Picasso did not focus on the actual bombing. Instead, he painted an overwhelming statement on the horrors of war and the human misery that resulted from the attack -- with symbolism such as images of a dying horse, a woman trapped in a burning building, and the anguish of a mother and her dead child. His companion of the time, Dora Maar, photographed the work in progress.
