Picasso’s Guernica

I remember when I first saw it… I was 20, studying abroad in London and Madrid was the last stop on my Spring Break Great Museums of Europe extravaganza. It was housed in its own building on the grounds of the Prado, the only occupant; behind an immense sheet of bullet-proof glass. (This was the late 80’s) Literally this painting is a blow to the stomach, sucking the air from your lungs, as you connect with the victims…

Whether or not you like Picasso, and Cubism – this video is sensational. Evocative, inventive, and a homage to the original.

    Hey! I was just thinking about you this morning! I picked up my green goddess in meditation this morning and find I’m still as moved by the gift today as I was all those weeks ago! I’ve been thinking about you and the other, and hope all is going well! It was so good to meet you face to face! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    I watched the Guernico video. Wow!! Powerful stuff! Maybe I will see it someday! I’d love that. My favorite painting of all is the blue old man with the guitar.

    big hugs!
