This is a small master-copy I recently completed of Picasso’s Guernica. The support is stretched canvas on trim board primed with gesso roughly 3/4’x 1 1/2′. Sorry for the sub-par picture, better documentation is coming soon. Picasso does a fantastic job of capturing the essence of that terrible night when the Hitler’s Luftwaffe bombed the unexpecting city of Guernica, Spain killing thousands of innocent civilians and leaving the entire city in rubble. After completing this mural sized painting an SS officer visited Picasso’s Paris apartment. He looked at the painting and asked “did you do this?” Picasso responded by handing him a signed postcard with the printed painting said “No, you did.”
