Pablo Picasso⁣ The Charnel House⁣ Paris, 1944-45⁣ “Echoing Guernica in its composition, abstracted forms and political content, The Charnel Housewas inspired by newspaper war photographs, the tones of which are reflected in its somber black-and-white palette. The central jumble of figures—a murdered family sprawled beneath a dining table—might suggest the piles of corpses discovered in Nazi concentration camps upon their liberation. While Guernica, a commentary on the Spanish Civil War, may be seen as signaling the violent beginning of World War II, The Charnel House marks its horrific end.”⁣ #modernart #20thcenturyart #paintings #painting #artlovers #artists #famousart #artlegends #art #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #artoftheday #artstagram #artofinstagram #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #artpreciatetheday #pablopicasso #picasso #thecharnelhouse
