Goya: War and Peace, revolution and exile. Gail Turner Tuesday 25 February 2020

for an application form please click here

Francisco de Goya’s life spanned the reign of 4 Bourbon monarchs, during which there was considerable social and political upheaval, including the Peninsular Wars. His early work was designs for the Royal Tapestry Works in Madrid but by the 1790’s his work included portrait painting, political satire, commentaries and experimental works. The study day will look at his early designs for the Santa Barbara Tapestry Factory in Madrid, his portraits of the Madrid elite and Royal Family and finally at his ‘political’ paintings and late work from his exile in Bordeaux.
