Topic Guide "Federico García Lorca"

 

Se le vio, caminando entre fusiles,
por una calle larga,
salir al campo frío,
aún con estrellas de la madrugada.
Mataron a Federico
cuando la luz asomaba.

El pelotón de verdugos
no osó mirarle la cara.
Todos cerraron los ojos;
rezaron: ¡ni Dios te salva!
Muerto cayó Federico
—sangre en la frente y plomo en las entrañas—
… Que fue en Granada el crimen
sabed —¡pobre Granada!—, en su Granada.

 

Antonio Machado

 

The Pavilion of the Spanish Republic at the 1937 Paris International Exhibition is one of the protagonists of the new art rooms inaugurated at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. Among the works that participated in the exhibition and that now visitors to the permanent collection can see is Allegory of the execution of Federico Garcia Lorca, made by the Andalusian Fernando Briones. In the Pavilion, next to poems, there was also a portrait of Federico García Lorca with the phrase POÈTE FUSILLÉ À GRENADE.

To the memory of the poet Federico García Lorca, universal granadino, we dedicate this topic guide.
