The Reina Sofia, ¨Queen Sofia¨, National Art Center, located near Madrid's Estacion del Arte, opened its doors in 1990 to celebrate 20th Century Spanish art. As part of the ¨Golden Triangle of Art¨ in Madrid, along with the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum houses some of the most famous works of art in the 20th Century. Artists like Picasso, Salvador Dali, Gris, and Miro are featured in the Museum's tribute to Modern Art and Culture. Picasso's ¨Guernica¨, is one of the most famous paintings in the museum. Guernica, painted in 1937, is an example of one of many anti-war paintings by the Spanish artist. The paitning is in response to the bombing of the Basque city of Guernica by the Nazi's and Fascitsts, by order of Spanish Nationalists, during the Spanish Civil War. Picasso's painting was used as a political statement to oppose the war and many of Picasso's paintings, such as the Weeping Woman, are linked to anti-Franco movements.
