This piece of art was done by Pablo Picasso. Picasso created this piece because he was commissioned by the Spanish Republican government to create a large mural for the Spanish display at the Paris International Exposition at the 1937 World's Fair in Paris.

The painting was created in response to the bombing of Guernica, Basque Country, by German and Italian warplanes at the behest of the Spanish Nationalist forces on April 26, 1937 during the spanish Civil War.
