He created an important example at every stage of his career from the classical works of the 1920s to the works produced in occupied Paris during the 1940s. Guernica (1937) by Picasso is one of the most famous paintings of all time. The painting reveals the importance of Spain, war, and most of all bullfighting. Picasso’s connection to his homeland of Spain is evident in Guernica, named after a small country town in north Spain that was the target of a terror bombing exercise by the

Jessica Arteaga Analysis Paper 22 Julio, 2016 R. Alves Guernica Pablo Picasso’s piece titled La Guernica painted using oil paint on canvas. This piece was made in 1937 as a representation of the bombing of the Basque town of Guernica in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. The horrors of war are shown through his eyes and point of view of what he thought and believed at that time.

Tom Roberts was born on the 8th of March 1856 in Dorchester, England before moving to Australia at the age of 13. There he studied in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria Art School before returning to his homeland in 1881. Selected to study at The Royal Academy of Art School, he toured to Spain where he met numerous notable artists who introduced him to the principles of impressionism in which he would later become world-renowned. Returning once again to Melbourne in 1885, Roberts, in light of his new experience and passion, painted many of his most known works, including Shearing the Rams, representing Australia’s landscape, weather and sparsely populated land. During the 1890’s Roberts travelled
The first difference between Monet’s garden and Picasso’s garden is artist’s background information. Background information is a general fact of the artist himself, which will provide audiences the better interpretation of painting toward each unique painting style. Claude Monet, French artist, was one of the pioneers of impressionism in 1860s, mostly created his artworks in a well-known “plein-air” painting style (Perry, 1927). Impressionism, in fact, derived from his artwork entitled “Impression, Sunrise” which gave its impression in terms of conveying feeling to most viewers as they were in the same situation (Dempsey, 2002). In general, impressionist art focuses on capturing the natural surroundings in a brief moment and shows in a rough style of painting (Grant, 2010).
The overall point of this poem is to convey the cruelty of war and what it accomplishes. The poet expresses the dilemma faced by the photographer in these circumstances through the way he ‘sought approval’ and tried to make ‘the readers eyeballs prick’ so that they would care. Duffy was inspired to write this poem by her friendship with a war photographer. She was especially intrigued by the peculiar challenge faced by these people whose job requires them to record terrible, horrific events without being able to directly help their subjects. The use of a semantic field of death shows the very dark side of conflict and gives an almost savage and sinister edge to the poem to make the act of war all the more evil.
Introduction I have chosen to critically analyse a piece of visual art by the Spanish artist Salvador Dalí. The painting is called Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Figure 1.1), oil on canvas, painted in 1936. It is a key piece of Dalí’s work as it represents the gore and horror of the Spanish Civil War as portrayed by Salvador Dalí himself. This piece of art was inspired by Dalí’s visit to Barcelona in 1934, while at that time the Catalan Republicans and Anarcho-Syndicalists merged their forces together to ultimately gain independence for the region, yet the Government army have regained control, resulting in scenes of violence, gunfire’s, and death in Catalunya. Dalí’s badly timed visit to Spain was sparked by an invitation to a lecture from Dalmau, an art dealer, but he decided to abruptly cancel the meeting due to the dangerous circumstances of the Catalonian uprising, leaving Dalí and his wife Gala to flee Spain.
