Picasso's Guernica : history, transformations, meanings by Herschel Browning Chipp( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps no twentieth-century painting has captured the cruel effects of war as powerfully as Picasso's Guernica. For the first time we can understand the entire history of Guernica both as an artistic work and a document of the conflicting forces that shook the world during the 1930s. This rich account not only traces the extraordinary creation of the painting but also establishes the context in which the bombing took place and the form in which the news of it reached Picasso. As Herschel Chipp demonstrates in his skilled analysis, Picasso initially pursued an idea for this work that had nothing to do with the struggle in Spain. When republican emissaries asked him to paint a large mural for the Spanish pavilion at the 1937 Paris Exposition, they left the subject to him. He began by sketching out a subject that had long interested him: the artist and his model in the studio, working together and engaging in amorous play. Only after the German Condor Legion bombed the Spanish town of Guernica did Picasso turn from this highly personal theme to one that evoked the anguish of those who had endured the attack. But even as he turned to the theme of suffering, Picasso sought characters for his painting in figures familiar in his art: the women in his life and the animals, horse and bull, that fought in the corrida. Once the bombing had begun to work on his imagination, Picasso finished Guernica in only twenty-five days. As Professor Chipp guides us through the day-by-day development of Picasso's masterpiece, he vividly conveys Picasso's transformation of all his materials into a wrenching cry against the suffering of war. Finally, the work describes the odyssey of Picasso's canvas from its first display in the Spanish pavilion to its eventual arrival in Spain. Javier Tusell Gomez, the former director general of fine arts in Spain, contributes a chapter on the delicate negotiations that preceded the transfer of Guernica to Spain and the preparation at the Prado of a secure place to display the work
Spain : from dictatorship to democracy : 1939 to the present by Javier Tusell( Book )

38 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The end of the Spanish Civil War marked a critical fracture in the modernization of Spain. When the last Republicans surrendered in early 1939, General Franco assumed dictatorial control. This book charts Spain's development under Franco and its subsequent transition to democracy up to the present day. Completed by Javier Tusell just weeks before his untimely death, it is the final work by Spain's most distinguished contemporary historian." "Spain: From Dictatorship to Democracy provides full coverage of the country's political, social, and economic transformation. It also traces developments in popular culture and the arts. Beginning with an introductory overview of Franco and Francoism, the book is organized chronologically, detailing each period's most significant developments."
Vivir en guerra : España 1936-1939 by Javier Tusell( )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La guerra de España es la única ocasión histórica en que nuestro país ha desempeñado un papel protagonista en la historia del siglo XX. Tan solo en otro momento, mucho más grato en sus consecuencias, como fue la transición a la democracia, España ha resultado protagonista de primera fila en la vida de la humanidad. No puede extrañar, por lo tanto, que, desde una óptica nacional o extranjera, se haya considerado como eje interpretativo de nuestro pasado lo sucedido en ese periodo. Todas las caracterizaciones de la historia española como un proceso hacia la guerra no son ciertas, pero sí lo es la peculiaridad en dicha historia respecto del resto de las naciones europeas, derivada de la guerra civil. En cierto sentido la guerra civil no concluyó hasta 1977, y desde 1939 todos los rasgos de la vida española estuvieron marcados por la impronta bélica
