About the Author

Book Description 
  
In Association with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia  
  
 
  
Robert Capa's unforgettable documentation of the Spanish civil war.  
  
 
  
Robert Capa first gained recognition for the images he made during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). This volume is the first to be devoted entirely to the finest of these images.  
  
 
  
In 1936, the move by Generalissimo Franco and an alliance of Monarchists and Fascists to overthrow the Spanish government mobilized anti-Fascist forces from around the world. Like many others outside Spain, Capa felt he had a responsibility to support the anti-Fascist cause, and drew worldwide attention to the fight through his photographs. Capa personalized the struggle of the Spanish loyalists, illuminated the strength and courage of the soldiers who carried on against insufferable odds, and galvanized compassion for the innocent and injured.  
  
 
  
John Steinbeck praised Capa for his ability to "show the horror of a whole people in the face of a child." His iconic photograph of a Spanish loyalist, which shocked the world with its intimacy and drama, epitomizes the power and sensitivity of his accomplishment.
