Picasso’s Guernica, Explained to Passersby in the NYC Subway
Perhaps one of the most famous works of anti-war art, Picasso’s Guernica is deeply symbolic, a cubist tapestry embedded with the image of a brutal Nazi bombing. Sadly, it’s housed in the Reina Sofía in Spain, which means many won’t ever get the chance to see it.
