Palmer To Host Lecture On Artist Francisco Goya

The Palmer Museum of Art will host a lecture on its latest exhibition, Francisco Goya: Los Caprichos, on Tuesday at 6 p.m. The exhibit displays pieces from Goya’s etching album, Los Caprichos. The lecture will be given by Andrew Schulz, an art history professor and the associate dean for research in the College of Arts and Architecture.

Goya, the 19th century Spanish painter and print maker whose works influenced future luminaries such as Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon, created art that exposed the various social, political, and religious abuses and oppressions in late 1700’s and early 1800’s Spain.

Well known for painting sinister, often horrifying scenes, the pieces on display feature “goblins, monks, aristocrats, procuresses, prostitutes, and animals acting like fools.”

Goya failed to sell the etchings from his Los Caprichos series, but today the works are considered some of Spain’s most historically important artifacts.
