Francisco Goya was a great Spanish painter and printmaker known as the last of the old masters and the first of the moderns. In his famous Los Caprichos series of prints, Goya critiques society and pokes fun at the weaknesses of the human character. Included in the exhibition are four very rare working proofs for the Caprichos, offering an opportunity to see different quality impressions from the same suite in one gallery space.

"Goya’s Caprichos and the Human Condition: is organized by the McNay Art Museum, curated by Lyle W. Williams, Curator of Prints and Drawings.
