Pablo Picasso paid tribute to Julius and Ethel Rosenberg who were executed on June 19, 1953 in Sing Sing prison in the United States. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were accused of spying for the USSR. The announcement of their death sentence led to waves of protests around the world, but nothing could stop this sentence to the electric chair.
