Tiger and his partner walked the animals back home in the rain.

Guernica painting is a famous painting by Pablo Picasso, painted in the months of May and June of 1937, whose title refers to the bombing of Guernica painting, which occurred on April 26 of that year, during the Spanish Civil War. The Guernica painting is an oil on canvas, with dimensions of 3.50 x 7.80 m. Despite its title, and the circumstances in which it was made, there is in him no specific reference to the bombing of Guernica painting or the Spanish Civil War. There is, therefore, a narrative, but symbolic. It is painted using only black and white, and a variety of gray.

The sides would, right, the burning house with the woman screaming, and the left, the bull and the woman with her ​​dead son. The triptych is not, however, the only principle of spatial present in Guernica painting. It has been said that this symbolizes the electronic scientific and becomes a form of social progress but also a form of mass destruction in modern warfare. The bombing of Guernica painting could be a test of this technology.

On 26 April saw the bombing of the historic Basque town of Guernica painting by German and Italian aviations, which represented the first indiscriminate bombing of civilians on European soil.In the first sketch of the painting appear as the main characters of Guernica painting : the bull, the woman with the light, the warrior down on the ground and the horse.

The Guernica painting was moved to the Spanish pavilion at some point in the second fortnight of June 1937, though the facility only opened to the public on July 12, with considerable delay on the date of the opening of the International Exhibition, which took place on May 24.

In a six-week period before, during and after the execution of the painting, Picasso produced a total of 45 sketches, which are currently set by the Guernica painting. In the sketches we can see that, on 18 and 19 April, the Picasso still had the inspiration to design the work, despite the proximity of the date of the opening of the Exhibition. In these sketches, entitled El workshop: it su painter and model, only foreshadows the Guernica painting regards rectangular composition, although it noted certain similarities with the figures of the final frame.

Even after completion, Picasso drawing studies followed by partial details. The collection of drawings and sketches done around the Guernica painting consists of a total of 62 works that accompany mural on its journey later (notes and 16 unfinished versions of the final painting).

In July 1979, the Attorney Dumas met with President Suárez and said shortly after the Guernica painting would be in Spain for the centenary of the painter (ie in 1981). On September 9 of 1981, the Guernica painting was packed and loaded, including heavy security to provide for the rejection of the citizens of New York or even a possible terrorist attack, on a jumbo aircraft called Lope de Vega, which the captain renamed Guernica painting II.

On the occasion of the Olympic Games of Barcelona 1992, rebuilt in the university this city a flag identical to the International Exhibition of 1937. Although planned expose Guernica painting in this new pavilion, as was exposed to the public for the first time, the government did not authorize the transfer.

The horror of nationalism is symbolical in the painting, but the Guernica painting shows no evident connection with the bombing of the Basque village, not even with the civil war, apart, of course, the title, because it was dangerous to criticize the dictator during the time of the creation of the painting. In fact, during the years of dictatorship, the Guernica painting did become a sign of political identity of Franco, which is a powerful symbol that never left the heads of the Spanish people.

Numerous artists painted reproductions of the Guernica painting over the years, in whole or fragmentarily, because they wanted to understand the genius statement of this famous painting.
