Woman with dead child

The pain and horror of war

Art that agitates


NOTE: A wailing woman with a dead child is on the left. A woman trying to escape is at the bottom right. A burning woman is on the right. A woman with a lamp is top right. A chicken and screaming horse and bull are shown because the bombing happened on market day. A dead soldier lies on the ground. Picasso said, “A work of art must make a man react. … It must agitate and shake him up.”
