Children’s drawing, Spanish civil war, between 1936-1938, by Rafael Barber, age 10
One of 634 drawings, which is part of the Southworth Spanish Civil War Collection housed in the Mandeville Special Collections Library at UC San Diego. The drawings were executed in pencil, ink, watercolor and/or crayon by Spanish school children in Madrid, Valencia, and elsewhere in Spain, and in refugee centers in France. Some of the drawings have Spanish captions. The drawings were collected under the auspices of the Spanish Board of Education and the Carnegie Institute of Spain. Some of the drawings were subsequently published in the book: They Still Draw Pictures with introduction by Aldous Huxley (New York : Spanish Civil Welfare Association of America for the American Friends Service Committee, 1938). The drawings in the custody of the Mandeville Special Collections Library have been digitized and are accessible via the UCSD Libraries DAMS or the online exhibit: They Still Draw Pictures.
