ROBERT CAPA       Life Magazine Madrid April 1937 - Spanish Civil War - La Guerra Civil Española

An original copy of Life, with the article 'The Spaniards Settle Down To Trench Warfare', featuring nine photographs taken by Robert Capa and Gerda Taro. Capa and Taro returned to Spain for the second time in February 1937.  They visited Madrid, where the fight for control had reached stalemate and the Loyalist troops had built an elaborate system of trenches in the area around the University City Hospital.  Capa and Taro photographed  scenes of the daily routine in the trenches.

Also photographed is Premier Largo Caballero, Socialist leader of the Government United Front, with Foreign Minister Julio Alvarez del Vayo on a visit to the frontline.  There is also a photograph of a special International Brigade Cemetery.Of interest, only Robert Capa, of the Black Star Agency, is credited with the photographs, as at this time Taro's work was being published under Capa's name.  It was around this time they had a stamp created with a joint credit, "REPORTAGE CAPA AND TARO."
