Goya


Join us for a curator led tour of the exhibitionGoya: The Witches and Old Women Album followed by light refreshments and the opportunity to find out more about new projects and opportunities within The Courtauld Gallery learning programme.


This major exhibition reunites all the surviving drawings from the Witches and Old Women Album for the first time, offering a fascinating and enlightening view of a very private and personal Goya.

Drawn in the last decade of his life, the album was never meant to be seen beyond a small circle of friends. Goya gave free rein to his creativity, inventing extraordinary images that range from the humorous to the sinister and the macabre.

In this exhibition visitors are invited to discover the private world of Goya’s boundless imagination, expressed through visions and nightmares, superstitions, and the problems of old age. Above all the drawings reveal Goya’s penetrating observation of human nature: our fears, weaknesses and desires


Attending teachers will be given a free resource pack and light refreshments.
