Berlin (Internationale Arbeiter-Assoziation) 1930. Helios Gómez was an important Spanish graphic artist, painter, revolutionary, anarchist-communist, and poet. His political avant-garde black-and-white works were highly appreciated early in his career, but he was deported from Spain in 1926 for his political views and activity. He dedicates this work to all of the victims of Fascism throughout the world, and the phrase "Terror Blanco", or "White Terror", refers to periods of repression, persecution, and violence committed by a monarchy or conservative group as part of a counterrevolution against their opponents. "White Terrors" occurred in the early 20th century in France, Russia, Hungary, and Spain, although the Spanish White Terror is the subject of this portfolio. As of December 2015, WorldCat does not locate a single holding of this title in North America. (Inventory #: 48387)
