War has always been a subject widely used in art, since ancient times, to document its outcomes or to denounce its actions.
From ancient times to the present day, the war has been the subject of numerous paintings, even if the perception it had compared to the past has changed a lot.
If before the Great War it was somehow exalted and glorified, from that moment on we will describe its horrors, rather than showing great emperors in uniform or the heroism of the soldiers.
A famous example of this is Guernica, one of Picasso's masterpieces, which tells of the impact that the Spanish Civil War had on the population.
The painter made it in just two months and exhibited it in the Spanish pavilion of the universal exhibition in Paris. If you want to be inspired by Picasso's story, write to us and it will be one of the next VTs we will activate.
