“Goya is the representative genius of Spain,” wrote composer and pianist Enrique Granados.
This half-day course examines Goya’s paintings within the cultural, social, and political context of his time; exploring dance, literature, and music and featuring a live performance by a classical guitarist.
We assess the impact of Spanish history, customs, and themes on Goya’s work, and examine his treatment of themes such as religion, war, and national identity.
The course moves on to consider Goya’s artistic legacy, exploring his influence on Spanish cultural identity around 1900 and his impact on artists such as Picasso, as well as writers and composers of the period.
Tea and coffee served. Lunch not provided. No experience necessary.
