Lecture / Francisco Goya’s Prints in Context

  • YALE UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY 1111 Chapel Street New Haven, CT, 06510 (map)

Francisco Goya played a pivotal role in the history of printmaking. His five series of prints span a turbulent half century in Spain, defined by the Spanish Enlightenment, the downfall of the old regime, the Napoleonic invasion, and the restoration of a conservative monarchy. Janis A. Tomlinson, Goya scholar and Director of University Museums at the University of Delaware, in Newark, discusses the imagery of each of Goya’s series in relation to the historical context and the artist’s biography. Followed by a reception. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at the Yale University Art Gallery. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Fund.
