Write a 500 word double spaced paper on Guernica by Picasso. Use the movie, library and online research to assist you with this paper. Structure the paper as follows:
Introduce Guernica and give a brief history of the work and why he painted it. Next, talk about the formal and conceptual part of the painting and answer the following questions: Why do you think Picasso chose the color, lines and shapes that he did?How do these visual elements contribute to the strength of the political message? What figures did he include and how did he depict them? (for example, why include a mother and child? a dying soldier? a horse? a bull?)How might these figures be symbolic to Picasso both personally and politically?
Lastly, talk about the reaction of the work personally and regarding his contemporaries: What did Picasso’s contemporaries say about Guernica?How does the painting make you feel?
Please site your work using APA or MLA style. I have included a page on canvas to assist you with this aspect of the paper. (If you use the video you need to cite the video)
