Description

Mark McDonald with contributions by Mercedes Cerón-Peña, Francisco J. R. Chaparro, and Jesusa Vega

This book presents the first focused investigation of Francisco Goya's (1746–1828) graphic output. Spanning six decades, Goya's works on paper reflect the transformation and turmoil of the Enlightenment, the Inquisition, and Spain's years of constitutional government. Two essays, a detailed chronology, and more than 100 featured artworks illuminate the remarkable breadth and power of Goya's drawings and prints, situating the artist within his historical moment. The selected pieces document the various phases and qualities of Goya's graphic work—from his early etchings after Velázquez through print series such as the Caprichos and The Disasters of War to his late lithographs, The Bulls of Bordeaux, and including albums of drawings that reveal the artist's nightmares, dreams, and visions.

Mark McDonald is Curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
