DescriptionOn the occasion of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Picasso's death, it is an ideal visit to understand the legacy of Pablo Picasso, his work and his passionate and revolutionary character, which continues to generate so much interest today. Through your guide, you will discover the artist's masterpiece: Guernica, the secrets and symbols hidden behind this internationally recognized icon of art, as well as the process of making it and the transcendental story behind the work. Guernica is a painting painted in Paris between the months of May and June 1937, whose title alludes to the bombing of Guernica, which occurred on April 26, 1937, during the Spanish Civil War. In 1981 the work finally reached Spain. It was first exhibited at the “Casón del Buen Retiro”, and since 1992 it can be seen at the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, where it is on permanent display. Its interpretation creates controversy and debate, as there are several symbolic figures that arouse disparate opinions. But there is something that cannot be discussed: its artistic and historical value, since it reflects one of the most convulsive moments in the history of our country. It is considered an icon of the 20th century, a symbol of the terrible suffering that war inflicts on human beings. Critic Robert Hughes said of Guernica that it was 'the last great historical painting'
