This is the first exhibition of Goya’s work in Turkey and consists of works from Spain and Italy’s leading museums and private collections. Curated by Marisa Oropesa, the exhibition mostly features Goya’s engraving series – Caprichos, Disasters of War, Tauromaquia, and Proverbs or Follies – that bear witness to a turbulent period in Spain and Europe. Goya’s realistic and at times frightening style separated him from his contemporaries, and influenced 20th century modernism.
