Pablo Picasso, the Creator of Guernica, was born in 1881

Pablo Ruiz Picasso (1881 – 1973) was a Spanish painter, draftsman, and sculptor who lived most of his adult life in France. He is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles embodied in his work. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) and Guernica (1937), his portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.
