FORTHCOMING EVENTS: HOLD THE DATE
The next event in 2015 will accompany the exhibition Goya: The Witches and Old Women Album (26 February - 25 May) and take place on Saturday, 25 April 2015. The exhibition reassembles all the known sheets from one of Goya's eight celebrated albums of 'private' drawings. These albums, each distinct in subject-matter, style and technique, were created relatively late in Goya's life, after he had survived a near-fatal illness that left him profoundly deaf from his early fifties, but still drawing at the age of eighty-two. They have been described as journals that record, in virtuoso manner, Goya’s innermost reflections on the world around him and on human nature. The exhibition curators, distinguished Goya-scholar Juliet Wilson-Bareau and Stephanie Buck, The Courtauld’s Curator of Drawings, and colleagues will shed light on this feat of international research and reconstruction, on the place of the album in Goya's oeuvre, and on the theme of witchcraft and old age in art more widely.
