More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Pablo Picasso’s famous 1937 painting “Guernica” was inspired by a fascist bombing of that Spanish City during the Spanish Civil War. As the story has been recounted since, during World War II, Picasso was living in occupied Paris and was asked by a Nazi officer, referring to a photograph of the painting, “Did you do this?”; Picasso’s reply was the famed “No, you did”, referring to the fascists’ role in the original bombing.
The painting was not allowed to be exhibited in Spain itself, on Picasso’s insistence, until Spain was a republic; it did not receive exhibit in that country until 1981, after it became a constitutional monarchy.
