Sueño y Mentira de Franco France, 1937. Ttwo etchings with aquatint each dated "8 janvier 1937" in the upper part of the copperplate.
CRAMER # 28:"This suite of 18 scenes on two plates was Picasso's protest against Franco's coup d'etat. His intention had been to make postcards or tracts which would have an impact on the Spanish people. For this reason - inspired by comics and the images of Epinal - the artist chose to use a sort of comic strip as his medium. In it, he derides the adventures of the spurious caballero Franco who, instead of attacking the enemy, strikes his own horse. In January 8 and 9, 1937 Picasso made two plates with 9 scenes on the first, and 5 on the second, 14 of the final 18 scenes. On May he "colored" the etchings with aquatint, and abandoned the idea of making postcards and decide to complete the second plate. With the recent bombing of Guernica (April 26, 1937) in minde, he etched 4 other scenes, no longher in the style of caricature, but clearly accusatory. In the scenes the artist created on June 7, Franco no longer appears, but the tyrant is accused by suffering women and by mothers - with their children at their side- crying out their despair. Picasso published the two plates with a poem entitled Sueño y Mentira de Franco. "
