History paintings are generally considered part of the past in which academic painting reigned, but Picasso was able to update this tradition by providing a modern grammar and syntax for age-old atrocities. His celebrated depiction of the Spanish Civil War here became an international symbol for the hostilities of war and a unifying symbol for all those who opposed it.
