She is also the only one who documented Picasso’s monumental work Guernica. She is depicted here as posing like a goddess sitting on a throne. She also wears a plumed hat on her head.

The painting and its world-tour during the year helped largely to bring the world’s attention towards the ongoing civil war and its harsh consequences.

The highly contrasting colors and the overly simplified depiction is from Picasso’s period of distorted depictions. He had various periods of different types of depictions in his art during his lifetime. This style is said to be near style of Fauvism, which also used contrasting colors.
