Picasso and Guernica at SF Public Library

The Art, Music and Recreation Center of the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library has a blog! They also have an exhibit opening tomorrow called, "The Making of a Masterpiece: Picasso and Guernica." From the SFPL blog:

The Art, Music and Recreation Center will present an exhibit “The Making of a Masterpiece: Picasso” on the 4th floor of the Main Library from November 3, 2007 through January 3, 2008. This exhibit marks the 70th anniversary of one of the most powerful anti-war statements of the 20th century. We will feature the library's recent acquisition of a special limited-edition Picasso publication which offers exact facsimiles of each of the drawings rendered by Picasso in preparation of his 1937 masterpiece "Guernica." Each drawing has been reproduced precisely in the same size and on the same kind of paper as the original. Insights into the artist's creative processes will be included, along with historical accounts of the Spanish Civil War which set the works in perspective.
