After the recent critical monographs, an exhaustive synthesis providing a different approach and a formal and political litmus test to this Modern Art manifesto on its seventieth anniversary.

Guernica emotional impact has always been extraordinary: the refusal of human barbarity and its cry for freedom and peace are alive now just as they were in 1937, the day Picasso gripped the paintbrush. Through an original photographic documentation, the book examines the different phases of its composition, the author’s intentions, historiography and a critical account of its many exhibitions. An indispensable book to see what no one has ever seen, because “a painting lives only through the man who looks at it”
