“Goya: Mad Reason
June 19 – September 18, 2016

Almost 200 years after the artist’s death, the work of Spanish court painter Francisco Goya (1746-1828) remains powerful, arresting, and pertinent. Addressing abuses of power and the ravages of war, Goya’s work shows his hope for Enlightenment principles (progress, liberty, tolerance) as well as his dismay at the movement’s failures, especially its inability to prevent war and oppression. Goya: Mad Reasonexplores these dynamics across much of the artist’s printmaking career, highlighting his mastery of both idea and artistic expression. The exhibition features superb editions from Goya’s print series, including Los desastres de la Guerra (The Disasters of War), La tauromaquia, (The Art of Bullfighting), and Los disparates (The Follies or Absurdities) from the collection of Yale University Art Gallery.”
