Course Description

Goya’s early work showed the influence of the Enlightenment and aimed to not only please but also educate his viewers. Later, the ravages of Illness, war, and political repression translated into enigmatic imagery that upended the traditional role of an artist. For Goya, art became an urgent reflection of the lack of meaning in modern society. From the royal tapestries and portraits to the incisive Caprichos, the impactful Disasters of the War, and the desperate Black Paintings, We will examine Goya’s amazing major works and his stunning evolution.
