The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center’s annual Marburger Memorial Lecture will take place virtually this year, on Sunday at 5 p.m. via Zoom. Manuel Borja-Villel, the director of the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, will discuss Picasso’s 1937 painting “Guernica,” the artist’s response to the bombing of that city during the Spanish Civil War.
The painting was entrusted to the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan in 1939 at the artist’s request, and it remained there until it returned to Spain in 1981.
Mr. Borja-Villel, who has been director of the Reina Sofia museum since 2008, will explain in his talk, “Visions of ‘Guernica,’ ” why and how the museum has decided to revise its interpretation of the painting.
