Through Spanish Eyes

War is a particularly noxious human activity.  This week we view it through the eyes of three Spanish artists, one horrified by the human misery born of the conflicts in the time of Napoleon and two who saw the horrors of the Spanish Civil War in the years prior to World War II…

Francisco Goya: The Disasters of War, Plate 25, circa 1811

Pablo Picasso: Guernica, 1936

Salvador Dali: Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonitions of
Civil War), 1936


An easy and inexpensive way to build a collection of work by today's finest painters, sculptors, and photographers-- Greeting cards from Fine Art America.  Easier still: just browse the Louis R Nugent gallery at Fine Art America.  Choose from hundreds of unique ideas for home and office decor or holiday and birthday cards for yourself or that special someone.  Individual cards cost less than $5.  Wall prints start at only $22.

Louis Nugent: Mesa Verde Three (Ghosts of the Anasazi)
