These works were radical screams of agony, from a contingent of left-wing artists who wanted to tell the world what was happening in Spain. The Spanish government sought to use the Pavilion as a means of political propaganda, to reveal the cruelty of Franco’s regime.
This January, Mayfair's Mayoral gallery is to recreate the impact of this small yet mighty exhibition by bringing together much of the art, as well as archival material.
You'll find work from masters such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder and Julio González, alongside important archival material, such as rare propaganda posters from the original pavilion.
Come and discover art as a force for change. In this turbulent tim, perhaps we need our own version.
