More on the Lawyers of Atocha

Austin, who spent a year in Spain when he was in college and later taught Spanish in high school before going to law school, read the post on Los Abogados de Atocha and did some research on his own.

He told me that a print of the Genoves painting was hanging in the Atocha law office when the assassins burst-in. The blood of the lawyers spattered on the print. The painting was already famous in labor circles, but then it became a sort of icon and the basis for Genoves sculpture.
