Guernica is a world-famous painting by Pablo Picasso. It is one of the world’s greatest anti-war paintings.
This very large painting shows the bombing of the spanish town of Guernica  in 1937 by the Nazi Germany and the fascist Italy. It shows how people, as well as animals, all suffer because of the tragedies of war.
The painting soon became so famous that it was seen as a world symbol for peace, so it travelled to many countries.
It was seen in several towns in the USA during the 1940s and early 1950s. The Spanish dictator Francisco Franco wanted it to come to Spain, but Picasso said that he would not allow it to go to Spain until Spain became a democratic country.
Picasso died in 1973. Franco died in 1975 and Spain became a democratic country. The painting went to Spain in 1981 and it now hangs in an art gallery, the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid.
