Photographer's Note

This is the monument to famous Spanish painter Pablo Pisacco. It is located in Osijek, along the banks of river Drava. When it was erected, at the beginning of the ’80, it was the only monument to Picasso outside Spain – I don’t know is it still so today… Auhor is Croatian sculptor Ivan Sabolic.

Building behind the monument still bears evidence of the war that was going on from 1991-95. Osijek is situated not that far from the border with Serbia and was heavily shelled. Renovation depends on many things (degree of destruction, ownership but mostly money) and though so much has been done, there is still quite a lot to do as well…
