The Prado Museum in the DOS version
“Picasso's painting, Guernica, hangs in the world famous Prado Museum. Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain in 1881. When he died in 1973, he was known as the greatest figure in modern Spanish art. Although he lived in France most of his life, Spain is eager to claim Picasso as a native son. The 1937 bombing of the town, Guernica, during the Spanish civil war inspired Picasso's most famous painting, Guernica. Like the artist, the painting was outside Spain for years. It was finally brought home to the Prado Museum in 1981.”
