I felt I needed to paint Picasso’s Weeping Woman and as there is always some sort of subconscious connection as to why I create what I do it makes me look deeper into the meaning of the subject.

Weeping Woman is based on an image of a woman holding her dead child. It is taken from Picasso’s anti-war mural, Guernica. Picasso painted both works during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). It was in response to the bombing of the Basque town of Guernica. The attack was carried out in April 1937 by Nazi Germany’s air force, in support of Spain's Nationalist forces. Hundreds of people were killed. The figure of the Weeping Woman is based on artist and photographer Dora Maar. Maar photographed Picasso's making of Guernica.

I can only put the meaning of why I needed to paint this is because of the war that is going on with the Ukraine and Russia atm.
