Francisco Goya

Los Proverbios (The Proverbs), also known as Los Disparates (The Follies), is an enigmatic portfolio of eighteen prints and the last major series to be etched by Goya. The compositions are complex, dark, and dream-like and so have inspired many interpretations including political commentary, traditional proverbs and the Spanish carnival.  Davidson Galleries will be exhibiting the full set of 18 works from the Proverbios series as well as selections from The Disasters of War and Los Caprichos from October 5th - 28th, 2017.
