This is where Picasso painted his work Guernica, an immense mural done in black and white depicting the bombing of Guernica, Spain during the Spanish Civil War. It is also the setting of a short story by Balzac, The Unknown Masterpiece, set in the studio of an aging artist on rue des Grands Augustins.
