Daring Technique: Goya and the Art of Etching
April 20 @ 10:00 am - September 9 @ 5:00 pm$12 - $65
Daring Technique: Goya and the Art of Etching presents thirty-three drama-filled bullfights—on paper—that collectively represent the history of the popular Spanish pastime. The scenes are brought to life—in ink—by Francisco de Goya (Spanish painter, 1746–1828), whose adaptation of and experimentation with printmaking techniques set him apart from his contemporaries and inspired generations of artists that followed.
