Goya's "Visions" in Ink: The Centerpiece of the Meadows Drawings Collection

Next: Tomorrow 10:00 am - 9:00 pm

Meadows Museum - SMU

Description

This exhibition highlights the Meadows's recent acquisition of Francisco de Goya's exceptional ink drawing "Visions" (c. 1819–23) from his "Witches and Old Women" album. This important acquisition is the first drawing by Goya to enter the museum's collection, which already includes key paintings and prints by the Spanish master: The Meadows Museum now joins only a handful of institutions worldwide that can boast such significant holdings of the artist's work across media. The very personal, technically accomplished drawing will be featured alongside a selection of Goya's prints containing related subject matter from the "Disparates" series, completed c. 1815-23, nearly simultaneously to the drawing itself. Additional examples from the museum's collection of works on paper will serve to highlight the uniquely intimate nature of drawings, as well as offer supporting insight into the multifaceted ways in which artists have employed the medium.
