Musée Picasso, Paris, France


Mangelos, Ovu sliku ne pozna 99% čovečanstva... [99% of mankind has not heard of this painting…], c. 1967-1972, tempera and collage on paper, 20 x 15.5 cm / 7 7/8 x 6 1/8 in.

Following the 80th anniversary of the creation of the work, the Musée national Picasso-Paris, in partnership with the National Museum Reina Sofía Art Center, presents an exhibition about Guernica, masterpiece of Pablo Picasso. The anti-Franco, anti-fascist and pacifist symbol, which is one of the most famous paintings in the world, was preserved in 1981 to Madrid where it is now permanently displayed. Thanks to an exceptional collection of sketches and archives, the exhibition proposes a lesson on the history of Guernica and clarifies questions about Picasso’s political engagement.
