Darkness Visible: Goya Prints from the Lunder Collection

September 13, 2018 - January 20, 2019

- Free

In the last years of the eighteenth century, the Spanish artist Francisco Goya (1746-1828) conceived a series of prints guided solely, he professed, by his imagination. Los Caprichos, or the Caprices, is the whimsical title Goya gave to his project, yet the series’ images are far from lighthearted. For Goya, an artist beholden to the Spanish court, printmaking was a means of elucidating the human condition on his own terms during an era of revolution and tumult. This focused exhibition of Goya prints from the Lunder Collection includes Los Caprichos and, until October 28, Los Disparates, or the Follies, also known by the posthumous title Los Proverbios, or the Proverbs, a work likewise suffused with a visionary darkness.
