The most iconic photograph of the Spanish Civil War is Robert Capa’s photo of a Loyalist Militiaman. The photo depicts the death of a Republican Iberian Federation of Libertarian Youth (FIJL) soldier, during the Battle of Cerro Muriano in the Spanish Civil War on September 5, 1936. The soldier in the photograph was claimed to be the anarchist militiaman Federico Borrell García.

Robert Capa made this photo without ever looking through his viewfinder. He was in the trenches with Republican militiamen, held his camera above his head and clicked the shutter. Although the photograph has not been free of controversy and some believe it may have been staged, Capa’s image was the first to show the battlefield death in action, and it elevated war photography to a new level.

The figure created from scratch by Attica Miniatures is available for sale painted on order.
