Zooming in on Picasso
Madrid’s Queen Sofia Museum has launched an online openaccess library of more than 2000 documents relating to Pablo Picasso’s renowned anti-war painting Guernica (left).
The site “Rethinking Guernica” gives access to texts, manuscripts, letters, documents, catalogues, posters, audio and video recordings and other information on the painting.
It also allows users to zoom in and examine the painting in minute detail.
The 27sqm Guernica was created after the Germans attacked the eponymous Basque town on April 26, 1937, during the Spanish Civil War.
