Francisco Goya: A Time of Unreason
Francisco Goya – should we seen him as an Old Master, or the first Master of Modernity? One minute a successful, famous painter for the Spanish Royal Court. The next, someone so disillusioned with his world that he attempts to obliterate it through paint. In the thick of the Peninsular War and a Spain rife with death, famine and disease, Goya began to ask completely novel questions on what it was to be human. The results are shocking and frightening, but also deeply profound and meaningful to us today. Till the end of time his messages will resound, forcing us to reconsider our lives and our role in this world.
