A pioneer of Modern art, Pablo Picasso began his artistic studies as a young child taught by his father. Picasso mastered the fundamentals of art at a young age, which allowed him to deviate and create new movements later in his career. His Blue Period and Harlequin phase show his master of color to express emotion and his notable Cubist and Surrealist works display his understanding of form. Guernica was one of the most inspiring paintings from Picasso’s Cubist period, which was painted during the Spanish Civil War in response to the bombings in the town of Guernica, Spain. His work can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; and the MoMa, New York; among many others.
