Massacre in Korea, 1951
Pablo Picasso


My goodness, this tells a lot about Korean history… :(
I looked it up because 1951 is during the Korean war and I did find that this is seen as criticism of American intervention in the Korean war. 
I’m not a good writer so… for more info click here.


It wasn’t just American:
 “During the years of war, soldiers from the UN-army started to adopt children. The UN-army contained most of the countries which would adopt the majority of the Korean children: Australia, Canada, Luxemburg, United States, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Witnesses describe the Korean War as something close to genocide. The UN-soldiers killed tens of thousands of Koreans on both sides indiscriminately, and it is also important to bear in mind that almost all of the first Korean adoptees were products of unequal relations between UN-soldiers and Korean women.”

Given knowledge of these events, the painting is far more powerful.
In any case, I know this because every international class bastard must know about the Korean War, as it became the model for the contemporary adoption industry.
