    After the bombing of Guernica during , Picasso made one of his most famous works which starkly symbolises the horrors of that war and, indeed, all wars. In the s, his art changed again and Picasso began looking at the art of great masters and based his paintings on ones by Velázquez, Poussin, Goya, Manet, Courbet and Delacroix. Picasso' War is a fetching and well-crafted account of Pablo Picasso's huge and astounding painting Guernica, that has come to symbolize the elemental barbarism of the recently deceased 20th century Martin deftly weaves the story of the painting into the background of the rise of Fascism and the course of the Spanish war.

    Guernica (UK: / ɡ ɜːr ˈ n iː k ə, ˈ ɡ ɜːr n ɪ k ə /, Spanish pronunciation: [ɡeɾˈnika]), official name (reflecting the Basque language) Gernika (pronounced), is a town in the province of Biscay, in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country, town of Guernica is one part (along with neighbouring Lumo) of the municipality of Gernika-Lumo (Spanish: Guernica y Luno. Picasso chose to paint Guernica in a stark monochromatic palette of gray, black and white. This may reflect his initial encounter with the original newspaper reports and photographs in black and white; or perhaps it suggested to Picasso the objective factuality of an eye witness report.
