Pablo Picasso, Dream and Lie of Franco, 1937

Wikipedia:

The Dream and Lie of Franco is a series of two sheets of prints, comprising individual 18 images, and an accompanying prose poem, by Pablo Picasso produced in 1937… [It is] Picasso’s first overtly political work and prefigures his iconic political painting Guernica. […] The individual images were originally intended to be published as postcards to raise funds for the Spanish Republican government, and sold at the Spanish Pavilion of the 1937 World’s Fair, although it is unclear whether any prints were made or sold in postcard format.
