This catalogue includes two essays, entries on all the works and a selection of texts on Picassos relationship with the great masters of the past. The first essay is by the exhibitions curator, Francisco Calvo Serraller, and focuses on Picassos dual perspective on tradition and modernity. The second, by Jorge Semprn, looks at Guernica and the history of the period. Given that the works in question are examples of modern art, the entries by curators at the Museo del Prado and the Reina Sofa are innovative in that they are written in the manner of short essays of the type normally used for entries on Old Master paintings.
