Guernica by Pablo Picasso is one of the most famous paintings in the world.
The actual painting is in Spain but you can now see a tapestry of Guernica at Whitechapel Gallery in London.
Here's part of the Guernica tapestry.
It shows the town of Guernica in Spain.
In 1937, Guernica was bombed in the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).
Lots of innocent people died.

Picasso was so upset, he painted Guernica to show how terrible war can be.
What can you see happening in the tapestry version of Picasso's Guernica above?
Whitechapel Gallery is a great place to go - not just to see the Guernica tapestry - but also all the other works of art on display.
There are free family packs and a fun trail when you're at the Gallery.
