Sidney Janis, director of the Organising Committee of the exhibition Guernica by Picasso for the Spanish Refugee Relief Campaign (an aid and fund-raising association for Spanish exiles created during the Spanish Civil War), informs the Fine Arts Gallery of San Diego that the lack of free dates for hosting the touring charity exhibition on Guernica means the painting will not be available for the exhibition they are organising.
