Discovering Goya's extraordinary use of imagination, wit and satire in an exhibition of around 30 rarely-displayed prints from our collections.
Manchester Art Gallery
Saturday 15 August 2009–Sunday 16 January 2011
This exhibition incorporated works from the artist’s three main groups of etchings: The Fantasies, The Disasters of War and The Follies, all of which were withdrawn or withheld from publication during his lifetime because of their controversial, disturbing or strange qualities.
Attendees could also see the Chapman Brothers’ gruesome sculpture Disasters of War (1993) alongside the Goya etchings that inspired it. See Visual Dialogues: Disasters of War for more details.
