Sueño y Mentira de Franco [plancha 1, II estado] París, 8 de enero de 1937
'Comics on the Frontline' establishes a fluid dialogue between the iconographic elements in the work of Picasso and pieces by different artists.
The exhibition focuses on 'The Dream and Lie of Franco' series created by Picasso in 1937. The etchings acted as conceptual and formal precursors to Guernica and reveal the committed political position held by the artist and his strong anti-Franco stance during the Spanish Civil War.
There will also be works on display from Helios Gómez and Toño Salazar.
