Picasso’s Guernica Revisited

T.J. Clark

In this talk, T.J. Clark refers to, among others, a photo of John Negroponte standing in front of Guernica at the UN, protest placards that appropriate Guernica, the 1937 Spanish Pavilion at the Paris World’s Fair, Portrait of a Young Girl (1914), Guernica (1937), Dora Maar’s photos of Guernica in progress, sketch for Guernica of 1 May 1937, sketch for Guernica of 2 May 1937, sketch for Guernica of 9 May 1937 and The Three Dancers (1925).

This lecture eventually became Chapter 6 in Picasso and Truth: From Cubism to Guernica, which appeared in June from Princeton.
