More than 200 political works by Pablo Picasso, created after the artist joined the French Communist Party in 1944, are on exhibition in an Austrian museum.

In Picasso: Peace and Freedom, he reflects on a politically turbulent time from 1944 until his death in 1973. Cock of the Liberation (1944) symbolises the end of German occupation in France, while The Rape of the Sabine Women (1962) reflects on the Cuban missile crisis.
