Picasso’s ‘Guernica’ in 3-D

On a visual level, Pablo Picasso is an artist many people take a shining to, but on a contextual level he leaves many people out in the cold. Guernica, his painting about the Nazi bombings destruction of the town Guernica during the Spanish Civil War, is one such painting that is regarded as his masterpiece; it leaves little to contextualized and therefore can be appreciated solely for its aesthetic value.

Artist Lena Gieseke has created an animated 3-D rendering of Picasso’s greatest work of art. Have any artists created any potential lasting works of art about the current War in Iraq? This is one of curiosity since I am not familiar with the art world.
