Guernica - Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso's monochrome painting of the 1937 bombing of the town of Guernica remains one of his more famous works. The tapestry version just unveiled at London's Whitechapel Gallery usually sits at the UN, acting as a powerful visual statement against the horrors of war. But there is much meaning beneath this famous work, writes Picasso expert Gijs van Hensbergen.

Diego Velazquez

filed under: @ 10:41:08

That Diego de Velazquez is the greatest of painters has never been in doubt. Anyone who has seen Las Meninas, that stupendous vision of the artist at his easel among the children, dogs and courtiers of the Spanish palace, glimmering like a mirror, the size of life and fully as profound, knows it at once. What Velazquez could achieve with the tip of his brush, all the way from literal to philosophical truth, remains astonishing to the mind and eye, even though every one of his marks is laid in plain sight.

A feast for both mind and eye
