Egypt's Surrealists come out of the shadows

The Egyptian Surrealist group Art et Liberté chose the image of Picasso’s Guernica (1937) to illustrate their first manifesto, Vive l’art dégénéré (Long live degenerate art), published in 1938. Fittingly, the document is now going on show at the monumental painting's home, Madrid's Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, as part of the exhibition Art et Liberté: Rupture, War and Surrealism in Egypt (1938-48) (until 28 May).
