Francisco José de Goya y Luciente ONLINE EXHIBITION

ONLINE EXHIBITIONS are short term, changing exhibitions of available inventory that are not currently displayed on the gallery walls. Usual duration, two weeks.

Alongside Rembrandt and Dürer, Goya stands as one of greatest historical printmakers known today.  His subjects range from Biblical depictions, to the bloody, but much loved sport of bull fighting.  He is best known, however, for his satirical and social commentary in biting series such as The Disasters of War and Caprices.  Ever a keen observer of his own time, Goya nonetheless succeeded in creating imagery of the human condition that speaks to generations of viewers even to this day.

Los Caprichos are the earliest of Goya's large series of engravings and invite imaginative interpretations from viewers even today.  Attemps have been made to discover the specific meanings of the compositions since their first publication in 1799.  Even though a disclaimer released at this same time claimed no specific indivduals were alluded to, the generally accepted view has been that they were inf act closely connected with particular people and institutions of the day and were bold, satirical caricatures directed against the Church, the Inquisition, the Government, and the Royal Family.
