Guernica. The history of an icon


Visita a Colección Gallery conversation English

The purpose of this activity is to help visitors understand how and why Guernica by Pablo Picasso (Málaga, 1881- Mougins, 1973) has become a symbol of Spain's transition to democracy and a universally recognised icon. The narrative goes beyond traditional interpretations and uncovers the multiplicity of factors and implications related to the artistic act.

Guided visit Guernica. The history of an icon

This program of gallery conversations offers some new looks at the Collection, through visits that are limited in both the number of participants and the number of works examined. The idea is to encourage visitors to draw connections, both between the works within the area visited and also between such works and the rest of the Collection.

This visit takes place in Room 206 Guernica and the 1930s, which is on the 2nd floor of the Sabatini building.
