“GUERNICA –The COVID-19 SPECTATORS”
Acrylic on Canvas 84″ x 48″
“Guernica – as the subject matter relates to the Basque Country and the Civil War it is personal and a topic of conversation for all Basques.”
“…Guernica is a large 1937 oil painting on canvas by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. One of Picasso’s best known works, Guernica is regarded by many art critics as one of the most moving and powerful anti-war paintings in history. It is exhibited in the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid. Ygartua’s journey to the Imaginary Global Kingdom of COVID-19 takes a turn, now visiting some of the most prestigious museums in the world. “Guernica” is on exhibition at the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain.
Paul Ygartua was greatly influenced by Picasso in many aspects – his heritage is Basque, his Father attained political asylum in England due to the Spanish Civil War and felt the personal suffering of an expatriate. It was the same deep rejection of one’s patriarchal country that Picasso felt when he left his homeland and rejected his country because of the atrocities of the civil war. Picasso reacted with retaliation when he created his masterpiece Guernica. Commissioned by the Paris government for the 1937 World Fair in Paris. It expressed his deepest sentiment towards all people at times of bereavement..”
