What you must see in Reina Sofia Museum

Reina Sofia GUERNICA-1

Guernica, 1937 Pablo Picasso

Guernica, one of the most renowned artworks of the twentieth century, is shown on the second level. It is because it reflects his fury over General Franco's decision to attack a Basque city in northern Spain by Nazis. This massive black-and-white artwork has now become an international emblem of genocide perpetrated during conflict.
