This event has ended.

Presenting the copperplate prints of Francisco de Goya, a pioneer of modern art in the Western canon. Goya began his career creating religious murals and tapestries, achieved popularity with his portraits, and ultimately rose to the position of court painter. The second half of his life was marked by tumult and suffering, yet within this troubled existence he produced several superb series of prints portraying the absurdity of humankind, including “Los Disparates” and “The Disasters of War.” “Los Disparates” in particular vividly depicts folly and the ignorance and superstition lurking deep within reality. These works suggest important ideas relevant to our confounding present times.
