Guernica in Fuengirola – 80 years on


PABLO PICASSO produced one of his most famous anti-war paintings ‘Guernica’ 80 years ago following the bombing of that town.

On April 26, 1937, at the behest of General Franco, the German Luftwaffe Condor Legion and the Italian Aviazione Legionaria launched wave after wave of attacks on the former Basque capital killing hundreds.

Now in memory of the event, an unidentified street artist has reproduced the painting in the deserted river bed near to the bridge on the Paseo Maritimo in Fuengirola hoping to obtain a few cents from passers-by for his work.

As can be seen from the photograph, this piece is some metres away from the street above and he has to rely on money being thrown to him.
