The Wounded Horse ... and All the Rest

Guernica, which you see here ...

... always reminded me of a scene from West Side Story.  But that's just me.  Others would tell you it's one of the greatest anti-war paintings ever.  To which I would respond that West Side Story was also a powerful anti-war piece.

If you're interested, there's a pretty interesting article in the BBC Magazine -- which is odd, since they're a television network -- here that deconstructs the thing to a degree.

Worth a read.
