This exhibit features :
- Forty rare “before steel facing” etchings by the 20th century master, Pablo Picasso. The Picasso engravings in the exhibition were done between 1966 and 1971 are rare “before steel facing” proofs. They are early proofs printed long before their respective editions were pulled, and are richer in contrast than the regular editions. They were kept by Picasso for his personal collection in the course of creating his 60, 156 and 347 Series. The breadth and depth of Picasso’s expression in these etchings is representative of his importance as the preeminent 20th century master.
- An early first edition of Los Caprichos, a set of eighty etchings by Spanish artist Francisco de Goya y Lucientes published in 1799. It is one of the most influential series of graphic images in the history of Western art. Enigmatic and controversial, Los Caprichos was created in a time of social repression and economic crisis in Spain. Influenced by Enlightenment thinking, Goya set out to analyze the human condition and denounce social abuses and superstitions. Los Caprichos was his passionate declaration that the chains of social backwardness had to be broken if humanity was to advance. The series attests to the artist's political liberalism and to his revulsion at ignorance and intellectual oppression, mirroring his ambivalence toward authority and the church. Los Caprichos deals with such themes as the Spanish Inquisition, the corruption of the church and the nobility, witchcraft, child rearing, avarice, and the frivolity of young women. Its subhuman cast includes goblins, monks, aristocrats, procuresses, prostitutes, and animals acting like human fools; these personages populate a world on the margins of reason, where no clear boundaries distinguish reality from fantasy.
Public docent tour at 3 P.M. (about 45 minutes).
