Goya in Bordeaux
Written and directed by Carlos Saura, Goya in Bordeaux explores the experiences and artistic evolution of the man considered to be one of the most important artists of the modern era. The final months of his life form the background to this film, which is rooted in his evolution as a man, his work, and his private obsessions.
Window onto Spain: Drawings and Prints from Ribera to Goya
Three centuries of drawings from Spanish masters are brought together in Window onto Spain: Drawings and Prints from Ribera to Goya. The exhibition explores the little-known art of Spanish draftsmanship, tracing its development from the Renaissance and culminating in the graphic genius of Goya in the 19th century. Rare works and drawings from Goya's personal albums are on display.
