Just as a sample, I show two cinderellas of the "Album Catalunya" (April - October 1933).
The first one depicts Pau Casals, better known worldwide by the Spanish translation of "Pablo Casals", (el Vendrell, Catalonia, 1876 - Puerto Rico, USA, 1973). Perhaps the best cello payer in the history. Author of the UN anthem, he played in 1963 at the White House for Pres. JFK.




Pau/Pablo Ruiz Picasso (Málaga, Spain, 1881 - Mougins, France, 1973) Although, Spanish born, Picasso spent all his youth in Barcelona, where he had lifelong friends, spoke fluent Catalan and considered himself one of us. So, its fit that he's is on the Catalunya Album, among the other Catalan painters of the time.





The Catalan text under the cinderella reads: "The purest modern painting representative. The colectionists compete for his works"

Two cinderella sheets just issued by the Catalan pro-independence party Estat Català, to divulge the brutal represion of the democràtic and peaceful Catalonia Independence Movement by the so-called "democràtic" kingdom of Spain.
