El Caballo de Guernika
Madrid Travel Blog› entry 1 of 19 › view all entries
In the late nineties, I was all about Picasso. I sketched so many of his works mainly from his early period.
I appreciated his later works in cubism but I was more drawn to his previous approaches. When I learned the history of his Guernica work I began to make study sketches of the individual elements of the greater work.
This sketch represents one of my attempts of the horse.
I had the pleasure seeing the original work in person at el Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid. I viewed the works of that museum until my feet hurt and then I stayed some more.
