One of the pieces of art discussed on Chapter Three that cought my attention and always does, is Guernica, by Pablo Picasso. He is actually one of my favorite artists. When I studied this master piece in my Perspective in the Humanities class, I really didnt' understand its meaning, but know that I see the story behing this piece, it's amazing to see how Picasso captured the pain and grieve of the people of Guernica, Spain.
To understand it, you have to examine piece by piece of this amazing work of art and then you will be able to understand it as a whole.
