GUERNICA: THE BIOGRAPHY OF A TWENTIETH CENTURY ICON

by Gijs van Hensbergen



Guernica relates the powerful story of Picasso's 1937 masterpiece, a painting that from its birth out of war and violence became known worldwide as a symbolic cry for peace. The acclaimed biographer of Gaudi traces the iconic painting's beginnings amid the Spanish Civil War through its use as a weapon in the propaganda battle against Fascism, through the years when it became the nucleus of the Museum of Modern Art's creation in New York, to its role as a symbol of reconciliation when it returned to Spain after the death of Franco, as democracy was reestablished.

 by Yannis Prekatsounakis

Yet the desperate fight for had everything: street-fighting in the town; heroic attacks against well-fortified positions and medieval walls; heavy losses on all sides; and tragic stories involving German aristocratic families like the von Bluchers and the Bismarcks. The book contains personal stories and accounts and tells the story of the battle, with the added perspective of extensive Greek accounts. The author has studied the battlefield in every detail, allowing readers to understand the actions by examining what really happened on the field of battle.
