About

Discover Goya's extraordinary use of imagination, wit and satire in this exhibition of around 30 rarely-displayed prints from our collections. This exhibition was refreshed in February with a new set of prints. Exhibits are taken from the artist's three main groups of etchings: The Fantasies, The Disasters of War and The Follies, all of which were withdrawn or withheld from publication during his lifetime because of their controversial, disturbing or strange qualities. You can also see the Chapman Brothers' gruesome sculpture Disasters of War (1993) alongside the Goya etchings that inspired it.
