A crane hoists Pablo Picasso's Guernica, which depicts the horrors of Spain's Civil War, out of the Prado museum in Madrid. It was transferred under tight security to the Reina Sofia art centre across the road. The transfer of the 1937 painting and sketches raised a furore as critics asserted that it went against the artist's alleged wishes that the work remain in the Prado.
