It can be expressed that Picassos work Guernica is a politically charged masterpiece. The figures are abstracted in such ways that they no longer seem realistic. The entire work takes on a uniform pattern, however there are objects and animals that suggest the emotions of average people in a time when turmoil boiled in the Spanish Civil war. My facts may not be clear about which war was erupting during this time, but his work does speak to an audience that is ready to translate his feelings from what may not have been viewed through a camera lens.
