In 1937, one year after the start of the Spanish civil war, while he was working on a commissioned painting for the Spanish Pavilion at the Paris International Exhibition, Picasso learnt about the bombing of Guernica and revised his original plan.
The Spanish situation strengthened Picasso's political commitment to peace and opposition to Franco, evident both in his art as well as his support of Spanish exiles, and artists in particular.
The exhibition then focuses on the cultural, artistic and humane forms of resistance that continued following the end of the Second World War. Franco vowed never to return to a Spain ruled by Franco and died in 1973 without seeing his homeland again.
