Their Royal Highnesses Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Asturias arrived at Sala Hipóstila at the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid this afternoon to view the new exhibition entitled, La Transición en Tinta China.

Curated by Professor Francisco J.B. de la Peña from the Universidad Complutense, the exhibit displays over 200 works by 80 different cartoonists.  Yes, cartoonists.  According to various sources La Transición en Tinta China:

“…takes a historic look at the period of the political transition in Spain through the works of some of the leading cartoonists of the day. From the years before the death of Franco, cartoonists, through new publications, stretch the limits of censorship and offer their readers the fruit of their expressive talent and his satirical wit.

What was the vision of these artists on the political transition? What contributed to it? This is the account that offers exposure in this exhibit which will be open to the public until August 25, 2013.”
