This exhibition is dedicated to a series of drawings by Spanish artist Francisco Goya.

The artist realized this series in the last decade of his life, drawings which were never meant to be seen by anyone except friends and relatives. His creativity was free and results of some extraordinary images that range from the humorous to the sinister and the macabre.

The theme and images were really different from the court painter to the Spanish crown. This album depicts the private world of Goya’s boundless imagination, expressed through visions and nightmares, superstitions, and the problems of old age.

After the artist's death, the album was split and drawings enter different collections and museums. The drawings are all reunited again for the first time in this exhibition.
