It was about five years ago that I realized my great love of paintings. I happened to be visiting my dear friends in Chicago for a few days and managed mainly at their insistence to squeeze in a visit to the famous Art Institute of Chicago.

Travelling can be fun, but travelling on a time schedule makes things difficult to plan. On my last trip to Barcelona a few years ago, I made it a special point to see the Picasso Museum.

So, I must be prepared to cram all the art I can into my limited time, and Paintings You Really Need To See in Europe is the perfect companion to help me paint my perfect vacation canvas. Did you know the Guernica was done in only four weeks? Twenty-seven metres of canvas, all black, white and grey. He experimented with colour but the final work eliminated it.
It was Picasso's contribution to the Republican cause and paid for by the government.

The figures are unrealistic, part absurd. Is war anything but? Wish I had researched a bit more about the artists and history during my recent visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario to witness The Great Upheaval: Masterpieces from the Guggenheim Collection, The exhibition chronologically traces the achievements of these tumultuous years as artists experimented with new ways to create art while launching such movements as expressionism, futurism and cubism.
