Goya: A Lifetime of Graphic Invention

A thorough presentation of Goya’s graphic works, including the rare, simultaneous display of complete 1st-edition sets of his four major print series.

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) produced almost three hundred etchings and lithographs that reveal his personal vision, tireless invention, and enthusiasm for technical experimentation.

Goya: A Lifetime of Graphic Invention presents Goya’s printed oeuvre as an integral —indeed defining— component of his life and career and invites a reconsideration of the artist’s paintings within the Meadows Museum’s collection.

Visitors will have the rare opportunity to view complete 1st-edition sets of his four major print series, Los Caprichos (1799), Los Desastres de la Guerra (1810-19), La Tauromaquia (1816), and Los Disparates (1816-23).
